People on social media don’t follow any dictionary, rather they use the words or acronyms that they create or created by other people. Generally, while talking, they start using some of the shortcuts for some words being used again and again.
That way, new words, and acronyms keep coming into use every day. When it comes to Snapchat, you will see some of the short forms that you might not have heard anywhere else. That is the reason, before starting to use Snapchat, you must go through some of such abbreviations to get to know the Snapchat and other social sites’ chatting culture well. If you know those, you won’t feel dumb when someone uses such acronyms.

How is HY Being Used on Snapchat?
Generally, the use of HY comes when you have to respond to something in affirmation when you are excited about the thing as well.
A query, Hey, are you ready for the dance party tonight?
You can respond, HY
That would mean, that Yes, you are ready, and you are very excited about it.
Although HY means Hell yea, sometimes it can denote only affirmation, and the person on the other side may not understand whether you are excited as well. In that case, to add more sentiments, you can use Hell Yeah stickers and emojis as well.

There might be many of such alternatives to this, but I know these two only at the moment.
Why Do People Use Acronyms?
The simple answer to this is it looks cool or at least people think they look cool when they use such short forms.
What I think is, it came from the days when there was no online chatting platform and we had the only option of SMS to chat where there were some character limits in one SMS. It was chargeable too. So, just to say more words in that limit, people started to use short forms, and that continued. Even though we don’t have to pay for sending every message, we use short forms since we are used to it now!
Also, it does save typing time as well. So, overall, using acronyms is beneficial in many ways.
