IKTR meaning on TikTok and Twitter

IKTR is an acronym that stands for ‘I know that’s right,’ and as with any other acronym, you can see it capitalized and non-capitalized.

To put it simply, the phrase is often used to agree with what someone else is saying, or as a way to punctuate your own statement. You may see it used on its own as a response to a post or even a private message, or you may see people use it at the end of their own statement to add emphasis.


Sometimes, people will also use the acronym IKDR, which means the same thing, and just stands for ‘I know dat’s right’ as opposed to ‘I know that’s right.’

The term is still widely used across the internet, and it looks like its usage is getting more popular as time goes on, so it’s a useful one to know the meaning of.
