QQ- denotes crying either because it looks like crying eyes or because in some games you had to press q twice to quit a group depending on who you talk to.

Also, joker, yes they are not acronyms if you can't pronounce them but most people use the word "acronym" to mean both acronyms and initialisms (as a matter of fact the spell check on my browser doesn't recognize the word initialism it is used so infrequently)
