What Is “MNU?”
First, this is not an English lesson. So do not start wondering if it should be me and you, you and me, or you and I. ‘MNU’ is the short form for ‘me and you. When someone on Snapchat uses ‘MNU,’ it means they are talking about themselves and you.

But, ‘M’ might be easy to guess. ‘N’ will give you a migraine because you might think it is the first letter of a word. In slang, ‘and’ is abbreviated as ‘N.’ ‘U’ will worsen things because of a similar assumption. ‘U’ is also the short form of ‘you’ in these streets.
