imed

verb; clipping
to send someone an Instant Message The abbreviation “IM” has become quite common in internet communication, especially among teenagers and college students. We refer to the electronic text messages that we send as an “IM” or as several “IMs.” Thus, it is logical that it should continue its derivation to extend to other parts of speech as well, and we can describe the act of sending an IM as the verb “IM,” which becomes “IMed.”
