Where does nd come from?
Nd originates as a misspelling or shortening of the word and. It was entered on Urban Dictionary in 2003, though certainly texters and typists had already long been using it.
Since then, it’s become a somewhat common practice on social media like Twitter or Twitch, the game streaming platform, to use nd for and either to save space or as a typo due to fast typing.
ND is also an occasional abbreviation for neuro-divergent, a term in use since at least the late 1990s for people who aren’t neurotypical, or someone with so-called normal neurological behavior and development. A neuro-divergent person may include a person with autism, for instance, or schizophrenia.
The University of Notre Dame in Indiana, founded in 1842, is frequently shortened to ND, as seen in their school logo and Twitter handle of its popular football team, @NDFootball.
Who uses nd?
Expect to see plenty of nd for and in texts and on social media. As noted, sometimes it’s a typo, other times a time-saver.
And the thing is, immigrants are the ones that actually get down nd do the hard work that alot of americans don't wanna do https://t.co/pMvaYYqn6Q

ND for neuro-divergent is used in the mental health community, especially by people who identify as neurodiverse in some way.
I think many other #ActuallyAutistic adults have had similar experiences.
Maybe we should consider this when we're forcing nuerotypical communication.

ND for Notre Dame is quite common among the university’s many sports fans, too.
