There was a time when people wrote letters, waited for days on end to get a reply. The means of communication have greatly evolved since, with email, chat & now smartphones you can text anyone any time. “Texting” as convenient as it is, can also be very exasperating at times. But, that is largely because some folks just don’t seem to know or care about the texting etiquette.

It is annoying when people reply with a curt “k” to a cheerful dinner invitation. What gets my goat is the excessive use of smileys and emoticons. This awesome video from Buzzfeed iterates the texting commandments; do watch.
