IDK when it comes to texting ... LOL

Posted Monday, November 14, 2011, at 1:16 PM

I do not text. E-mails are my genre. However, there are millions of people who twitter and tweet messages.

Some people are obsessive/compulsive about texting waiting for responses and texting again and checking for responses ad nauseam. The message is limited to about 140 characters so a myriad of abbreviations have been developed to conserve space.

Not to be outdone by the young folk and to show they are "with it," many Geezers, Curmudgeons and AARP Grenadiers are becoming technologically literate and they too have swooned under the spell of technology and have begun texting.

Since I do not text my contribution is lexicon of terms.
