TXT CHMP

An Iowa teenager who has had a cellphone for all of eight months won a national texting contest and took home a cool $50,000. I guess that prize money will cover last month’s cellphone/txt bill. From the article:

In the final showdown, she outtexted 14-year-old Morgan Dynda, of Savannah, Ga. Both girls had to text three lengthy phrases without making any mistakes on the required abbreviations, capitalization or punctuation. Moore squeaked through by a few seconds on the tiebreaking text, getting the best two out of three. As she anxiously waited for confirmation of her win, tears streamed down her face.
