Should you use text abbreviations at work?
My coworkers and I had a debate on this today: should you use text abbreviations like "thx" or "brb" in professional communication? And is there a difference between email and an instant messenger, like gchat or slack? I think its inappropriate at any time, unless you're speaking to a friend, but I guess peoples opinions on this have loosened over the years.
