If you are an avid user of various social media platforms or messaging apps, you may have encountered the acronym WRD. You may wonder what is the meaning of this acronym on the internet and how to use it in conversations.

Well, you’re in luck, as in this article, we are here to answer all your questions regarding the WRD.

What is WRD?

WRD is a shorthand for ‘word’.

When a person writes WRD, they agree with your thoughts, comments, or video in general.

Usually, in the real world, we would say, “I agree”, “You are right”, or “I concur”, but in the Gen Z terminology, you use WRD.

Another way this acronym could be used is to describe something ‘weird’. The word’s meaning depends on the context and the tone in which it is used. It also depends on the relation of the persons who are using it.

The third way to use this acronym is to display shock.

Here are some examples of how you can use this acronym:

Example 1: To concur or agree

  • Person A: “Let’s go to the movies.”
  • Person B: WRD, let’s go.

Here, WRD was used as a means of agreement.

Example 2: To display weirdness

However, let us take another example of the same acronym:

  • Person A: “I can’t believe he stole from you.”
  • Person B: WRD, me neither.

In this conversation, WRD means ‘weird’ or ‘unusual’.

Example 3: To display shock

  • Person A: The incident was so WRD.
  • Person B: I know, right?
