why do i always see w's at the end of japanese words??

it might just be me but is there sometimes w's at the end of some sentences or words? Does it mean something??

    What do you mean? I don't really remember anything like that. Do you have any examples?

    if you mean:
    これは意味がないwww
    those w's? then that is the Japanese version of LOL. it stands for (笑う) warau meaning to laugh.

    There's another (newer?) version of this too, presumably to save characters (in a tweet or forum post). Some just place 草 (kusa, meaning 'grass') because several w's look like grass wwww

    But if www stands for 笑う why 3 w's because in 笑う there is only one w and the word starts with that one w.

    Btw I like how the www evolved to 草. I think it is pretty funny.

    Thanks!

    It isn't really limited to 3 w's can be any number, the more the funnier. like lol, LOL! or LOOOLLLLL!
