Words are still powerful, but they are now much shorter and full of capital letters.
Like LOL” (Laugh out Loud), OMG (Oh my God) and FYI (For your Information) which were added to the Oxford English Dictionary (OED) in the most recent update.
After those additions, OED noted that, “First quotation for OMG is from a personal letter from 1917; the letters LOL had a previous life, starting in 1960, and the entry for FYI, for example, shows it originated in the language of memoranda in 1941”.
Here are some other powerful words previously added to OED:
WAG = Wives and Girlfriends
TMI = Too much Information
All-Iranians suggest the following powerful words to be also added to the OED:
NBD = Not Big Deal
ISU = Iran Stand up
PAP = People are Powerful
ISF = I Speak Farsi
MBD = Marg bar Dictator
SAG = Seyed Ali Geda
