The first text message was sent in 1992. Today over 10 billion text messages are sent daily, more than the world population.
It is the most widely used mobile data service with around 2.5 billion users worldwide.
Texting has been extended to include images, videos, and sounds.
People send text messages like crazy these days. Many choose their cell plans based on having unlimited texting.
(Twitter is like public text messaging where anyone can see and comment on what you are sending.)
An interesting observation is how people have become expectant of receiving immediate replies after sending a text. They will pickup the phone within minutes, call you, and ask if you got their text.
How many texts do you send on average each month?
