Wow cool photo!! Btw, is he touching your penis?!

An e-acronym for By The Way.

It is usually maintained by IRC users who are living in the glory years of their lives (although for most other people that time is gloriful). Most often it's constructed in a way to give a "conversation" a new direction, since the person in question lacks any verbal capabilities to create well-versed sentences avoiding annoying shit acronyms.

IRL BTW is usually replaced and/or completed with phonetic compulsions like "uhmm" and "ehr", especially when addressing the other sex. Btw is also a great tool to make a point after some whiny rambling.

Mario gives an example here
