Morgan Pozgar, a 13-year-old, won LG's National Texting Championship after she defeated her West Coast competitor. The net prize is USD 25,000. With her little thumps, she successfully texted "Supercalifragilisticexpialidoucious! Even though the sound of it is something quite atrocious. If you say it loud enough you'll always sound precocious" in just few seconds.
According to Pozgar's mom, the 13-year-old girl receives 8,000 - 10,000 messages per month.
Implications - Every year, cell phone use becomes more prominent and the age of cellphone consumers gets lower and lower. As such, text messaging has replaced previous means of communication such as phone calls, and parents are continuously amazed at the incredible typing speeds of their children. To appeal to the young text-messaging population and promote their products, companies are initiating PR campaigns that are inspired by the modern love of texting and portable phones.
