Acronym meaning "Too Long For Text"

Typically used when 160 characters-or-less just won't cut it, four of the characters are used to write tlft and imply that the epic story will be conveyed in a higher-capacity medium e.g. vocally, electronically mailed (or "e-mailed"), instant messaged (IM'd), etc. One can also be slightly redundant in the same text and follow "tlft" with "tell you later."
