What does YWA Mean in Texting?

YWA is an acronym for “you’re welcome anyway”. It is a somewhat snarky reply people use in various situations.

For example, you can use YWA (“you’re welcome anyway”), when you answered someone’s question, even though you didn’t provide them with the exact answer they were looking for.

This basically assumes you’re being thanked, even though no one thanked you for real, which is why it is a snarky response.
