be back in a bitBBIAB is shorthand for be back in a bit and is used in chat to let others know that you are leaving, but will return shortly. Users also often use BBIAF, which is short for be back in a few and BBIAM, which is short for be back in a minute. Below is an example of how this would be used.

User1: That's pretty funny.
User2: Heh yeah, BBIAB.
User1: Ok.
<User2 logs off>
<User2 comes back on later>
User2: Ok I'm back.
User1: WB
User2: Thx
