So, What Does DT Mean?
DT is mostly used on Instagram, and stands for Double Tap. DT has several different meanings in slang, but this is its most common usage.
If there is a picture on Instagram that you like, you can tap the little heart just below it. Alternatively, you can double tap a photo to like it. This feature means you don’t have to search for a like button.
Instagram users often write #dt to accompany an uploaded photo, which encourages others to double tap their phone to like it. Incentives are also frequently offered in exchange for a double tap, e.g reciprocal likes, a text, dm or tbh. Sometimes users circle an area of an uploaded picture and encourage others to double tap the circle, often claiming that something magic will happen if they do.
