What does OTC Mean in Texting?

OTC is an acronym for “on the cool”. It is a different way of saying “on the real”, or seriously. You use this before a question when you want to get a serious answer out of someone. You can also just use it when someone isn’t behaving correctly, so you write it before the warning so they know you are serious.

It is yet another acronym that makes texting more convenient.
