However, it can often mean that some users are left in the dark, wondering what certain acronyms mean.

If you’ve seen this one floating around but didn’t know what it meant, not to worry. Here is a guide to what does DTM mean on Snapchat as well as some other useful acronyms.

What Does DTM Mean On Snapchat?

DTM most commonly stands for “Doing Too Much” or “Do Too Much.” This can mean someone is being overdramatic or sensationalising something. For example, someone might say “I was crying in the club about him, but then I realized I was DTM.” It could also mean someone crossing a line or pushing a boundary. For example, someone could say “You don’t have to agree with me, but don’t insult my appearance, that’s DTM.” In either case, DTM can be a reminder to chill out or calm down and reassess the situation, whether it’s directed at yourself or someone else. Alternatively, it could also have a literal meaning. For example, ‘You can’t keep taking on more projects, you’re DTM.”

Other Meanings of DTM

DTM can also mean “Don’t Trust Me.” This is a self-deprecating way of saying you’re not reliable. For example, “I’ll try to show up early, but DTM honestly.” It’s essentially leveling someone’s expectations so you don’t let them down. It can also stand for “Don’t Tease Me.” For example: “No DTM, I’m sensitive about that.” This usage is fairly uncommon, though.
