An Academic Look at W@

W@ is classified as a cyber term as opposed to an initialism abbreviation or an acronym. Initially, cyber term terms were introduced for brevity, but, particularly with the advent of predictive texting and on-screen keyboards, they are now mostly employed for fun. Cyber terms differ from icons because they are not pictorial representations.

W@ commonly plays the role of an interrogative sentence (i.e., a question), but it is commonly seen without a question mark. In other words, it can be written "W@?" or "W@".
