An abbreviation that is widely used in texting and on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and elsewhere on the internet, but what does DOA mean in slang?
DOA stands for Dead On Arrival.
DOA is used to indicate a new item that was received broken, or that an idea or concept is a nonstarter. DOA has long been used as a medical term to indicate that a patient was found to be already clinically dead upon the arrival of professional medical assistance.
The suggestion that I should go on a date with Andrew is DOA.
