Think u got txting skillz? Think again

By: Zach Flauaus July 15th, 2008

If you’re a parent who says that texting is useless, think again: Your kid could very well win $50,000. Well, not this year, as the contest is over, but next year perhaps. Each year, LG holds the National Texting Championship, where the rules are pretty simple: if you text the fastest, you win. Plain and simple, yes? Except for the fact that you must use an LG phone.

Well Nathan Schwartz, a 20-year old college student at Cleveland State College, claimed the title for this year’s competition.

Though none moved enough to break a sweat, many looked nervous as they tried to type phrases like “I am sooo ready 4 this down n dirty battle on the QWERTY!” in less than 90 seconds. For authenticity, LG peppered passages with texting lingo like “4get” and “2moro.” Players had to avoid typos and grapple with practical issues like incoming calls and messages which usually delete partially composed texts.

Really? Tried to screw with contestants on flaws that you know are on your own phones? Typical. What I’d really like to see is who can type a really long passage the fastest. Say, the Gettysburg Address? Perhaps the Magna Carta for that olden English. In the mean time, I’ll ttyl, my 1337 readers.
