Top posting - sorry.  Blame my browser.



I can't really make out how I say it! There's certainly some kind of
brief stop before the /T/, but I don't think you could say it was
[t].  Seems to be somewhere between [wI4T] and [wI?T].

I agree.  I think the common non-standard pronunciation is
either [wITT] (slightly less careful) or [wIT] (least careful).
