#WTL is a common hashtag used on Twitter, Facebook, and other social networks, often used in the question, "What's the #WTL?"
Similar to the U.S. Government's Terrorism Alert Level, the answer is usually a color such as "red" or "orange." The subjective level is usually influenced by some ludicrous, exaggerated or manipulated hyper-partisan political event being praised or lauded by political operatives or extremists.
Regardless of which color (or other signifier) is used, the more the event threatens the public discourse, political civility, or narratives being advanced by the concorporate media, the greater is the assumed threat level.
