Really interesting article about texting nuances.
At one point in my life I was the person who hated texting. Now, I'm an expert. Scratch that, if I had a dollar for every time I texted the wrong person or thigh dialed someone, well I would have many dollars! Texting is still largely a pain in the ass, but the ethnography surrounding the language is interesting. In a short decade an entire culture has adapted to most of the rules and mores of a vile cross between the written word and an "unspoken" language. Can't live with it, and well can't really live with out it. Mainly, because I would not want to spend as much time on the phone as I do texting.
My current text "isms"
Also, the whole question behind, how quickly one should or should not respond to a given text.
Is there an age limit on this kind of admittedly obnoxious communication??
