One word when shortened and accepted widely is called Abbreviation (Abbr)
When two or more words are shortened it becomes an Acronym (QNA)
Its humorous to acronym an acronym otherwise it has no usage .

Acronymsis abbreviation that are formed using the initial components in a phrase or name. These components may be individual letters (as in CEO) or parts of words (as in Benelux or Delmarva). There is no universal agreement on the precise definition of the various terms, nor on written usage. While popular in recent English, such abbreviations have historical use in English as well as other languages. As a type of word formation process, acronyms and initialisms are viewed as a subtype of blending.
