On TikTok, WRD stands for ‘word,’ and it is an abbreviation that is used to show agreement or to express excitement about something that someone has said.

For example, if a TikToker posts a clip of themselves dancing and a user comments, “You killed it,” someone else may reply to them with “WRD.” This simply means that they agree with their opinion.

It could also be used to express shock or disbelief, as the term is often compared to the words “really” or “seriously.” For example, when someone shares a difficult experience they have had, another user may respond with, “WRD? I’m sorry to hear that.”

The slang ‘word’ has been around since 2004, and it’s frequently used across popular social media platforms like TikTok, Snapchat, Instagram, and more.

Some may also use it as a shortened version of ‘weird.’ However, the former meaning is generally more common to see on the short-form video app.
