What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 131 Stack Exchange communities.

Stack Exchange Glossary mentions that OP is:

Original Poster. A quick way to point at the person who wrote the question.

Is there any such terminology to point at the person who posted an answer? Or OP can be used for both? In later case we would have to update the Glossary.

Yes.

However, it's more commonly used for askers. If, however, you write "OP" in a comment to an answer, people will (probably) assume you are talking about the answerer. To avoid any confusion you can simply write something like "The OP of this answer..." instead.
