An Academic Look at WYDWYD is an initialism abbreviation. Technically, this means it is pronounced using its individual letters (i.e., Dublyu Why Dee), but as this is harder to say than "What you doing?" it is not often uttered using its letters. In other words, the abbreviation WYD is for efficiency in writing and not efficiency in speech.
WYD is an interrogative sentence (i.e., a question) and should technically end in a question mark (though this isn't always the case).
