What’s billed as the first text messaging competition will take place in Los Angeles on Saturday, pitting scores of players in a race to determine who is the fastest.
The snag is that popular text shorthand will not be allowed.
“Texting has become such a trend and kids are using texting as a form of communication. It’s become like, ‘Who can text the fastest?’ Everyone thinks they are a good texter,” said Amy Jones, spokeswoman for organizers LG Electronics.
Players will compete in groups to see who can text set phrases quickest and without errors, with the winner getting a $10,000 prize and advancement to the finals in New York City on April 21.
