In a texting competition held in New York City, a team of South Korean texters won the grand prize of $100,000. Second place finishers went to the U.S. National texting champion team of Kate Moore and Morgan Dynda. They share a $20,000 prize.
The mind blowing statistic is the quantity of texting these girls do every day. Ms. Moore says she averages 12,000 texts per month! Let's see, 30 days per month, 16 hours per day (they need some sleep at least), 60 minutes per hour. That works out to one text every 2.4 minutes. That's not even counting time for eating, school activities (I doubt her school let's her text during class hours), personal hygiene, homework, sports, etc... Though the prize money is nice, I'm not sure this prize is something she will want to list on her college application, let alone job resume.
