Less of a slang thing and more of an old internet thing in general, but i really miss seeing people use emoticons.
Especially now with the overbearing presence of emojis, they have basically no chance of ever coming back. I still use them, but i guess that places me in the minority XD
People stopped using emoticons when websites and apps started autocorrecting them to emojis. I remember thinking it was aids when I first saw it happen.

I don't even know the last time I saw brb or gtg. Now everyone just replies ages later so there's never a need for it.
damn... you're right i didn't even notice that change. Because technically on a smartphone you're always at keyboard theres no gtg or brb needed.

Brb and gtg came and went with the instant messenger era.
