Thank you Susan53 for answering.
I know this is called yod coalescence; I posted a thread about it before. As you know, The consonant T is part of the plosive or stop consonants (p,t,k, b,d,g). The phonemes /t/ and /d/ are alveolar plosive/stop; /p/ and /b/ are bilabial plosive/stop while /k/ and /g/ are velar plosive/stop. It seems to me that this is the reason (why) they're also called stop consonants; a stop can be made at the /t/ sound, and YOU/YET pronounced alone.
