    NO WAY! It shows a total lack of laziness.

    Using "cuz" or "coz" (in Britain) is certainly much better than that recent habit of using "cause". Do people really not understand that "cause" is an old-established noun meaning "reason"?

    I've never written cuz or seen it written, as a sub for because. Actually I thought it was short for cousin.

    No. If you must shorten it use the word Cause. It looks slightly less immature than writing cuz.

    Yeah it’s fine with texting if it’s not formal that's about it

    Unless you are a preteen, writing "cuz" seems a bit immature and bratty. Use full words when writing.

    If you want to come over as a sub-literate 12-year-old, go right ahead.

    Yes, "cuz" is acceptable in very informal situations, such as texting and tweeting, where each character counts. It's only acceptable because it is easily understood. Similar to using "til" for until, or "thru" for through.
