When it comes to the internet, so many slang terms come and go that it's hard to keep up. Remember when 'bae' started? It took a while for it to die down, but it's still in our vocabulary thanks to the internet. Well, another trend has started and you've probably seen it. A ton of celebrities keep tweeting "ontas", here's what it means.
If you're tired of the term "Netflix and chill", then you're in for a treat! Ontas, which is a just a shortened version of the Spanish saying, "Dónde estás", actually means "Where are you?" So why are celebrities tweeting this so much?
Well, you probably didn't expect this, but it's kind of like a booty call. Yup! So if you see a celebrity tweeting "ontas" and they @ someone, like Barbara Palvin did to Dylan Sprouse, you know what's up.
Apparently, the term stems from a Mexican meme, and a few celebrities are confused about it because it's all they see in their DMs. So, if someone messages you "ontas?", you know they're asking "you up?" or to come over.
Maybe you had to cancel your Netflix subscription because the prices are too high now. Well, instead of asking if someone wants to Netflix and chill, you can simply say, "ontas?"
Here are a few tweets about "ontas" from celebrities that will make you confused, laugh, and shake your head all at the same time.
So if you see "ontas" in your DMs, don't be alarmed. We may have to get used to this as the new charming term, but like with all things on the internet, it will probably go away at some point.
