The features of the vernacular include deliberate shortenings of words and acronyms in order to communicate with as few characters as possible.
Punctuation, capitalization, and less intuitive spelling is usually left out for the purposes of increasing the efficiency of communication.
Chatspeak also includes some slang terms from popular internet fads which are usually intended to be humorous.
-hey wat did u say u wanna do
-i was gonna go out lol... btw jeff called me
Chatspeakers are generally looked down on by people who can actually spell and who have enough self-respect to type out a real sentence.
Chatspeak can never be considered 'literate.'
