"MTFBWY" is the slang acronym for "May the Force Be With You". It is a colloquial way of saying "good luck/take care" when someone leaves an online chat conversation.

This expression is seeing a tremendous resurgence in popularity, as the new Star Wars movie of JJ Abrams releases in late 2015.

"MTFBWY" is often spelled all uppercase, but can be also spelled "mtfbwy". All versions mean the same thing. Just be careful not to type entire sentences in uppercase, as that is considered rude shouting.
