Everyone has their own set of rules when it comes to texting. No one really knows just how long a conversation should last, we all have that one friend who takes two days to text back and then only says “ok,” and I’m willing to bet relationships have been ended over differences in texting styles.
Nicki Minaj recently shared her own rules of texting etiquette via Twitter, and they’re relatable AF. The dreaded “Kk” response tops her lists of no-nos, along with lots of other stuff that have probably driven you crazy on occasion, too.
