The other day I spotted a teen huddle and was amused by the lack of interaction between them, before realizing that they were all in synchronous communication with each other via text messages. Why kill your thumbs for someone ten inches away from you? For the $100,000 LG Mobile World Cup grand prize, that’s why.

LG recently awarded the world’s fastest texting team a whopping $100,000 for their fantastic fingering feat, at the first ever LG Mobile World Cup. There’s been a few texting competitions throughout the world, but none as large as this, or with such an impressive payout. Stats for $100,000 Texting Awards Trending: Older & Mild
