Korean speakers: can "jigeum" (지금) be abbreviated to"jim"?

Someone said "jim" (I m not sure of the hangul) is an abbrievation for "jigeum" (지금) meaning now, and that Koreans use it a lot in many situations. I can t find anything about it online, so is this true?

Thank you:)

    Yes, that's fairly common and many Koreans do it all the time, but mostly in text and SMS, not in everyday speech.
