What does IIRC Mean in Texting?

IIRC is an acronym for “if I recall correctly”. You can use it when you’re texting in any situation where you would use the full phrase. Since typing “if I recall correctly” each time takes up too much time, you can simply write IIRC.

This acronym has been around since the 90s and the early days of the Internet. It is still popular because of its convenience.
