On Snapchat, WTMS usually stands forWhat The Most Stupid.’ This term expresses disbelief or frustration with something considered foolish or senseless. It’s often mistaken for the phrase ‘WTM,’ which has completely different meanings.

The origins of WTMS are unclear, but it is believed to have originated as a variation of the more commonly used abbreviation ‘WTF,’ which stands for ‘What The F**k.’
