    12,000 texts a month, 30 days a month, 400 texts a day. 24 hours in a day, ~16-17 texts an hour.

    Possible for most people. I only text about two people day in and day out so I am a little limited :p

    ^ Nothing wrong with that. Your post count is 1.97 per day. As cantthinkofone pointed out in post #2 the competition level in this contest averages 400 texts a day. There's a difference there, just slightly, but I think you're in the clear. :)

    I think I remember a competition like this on Late Night or Leno or something.

    But they pitted a couple young texters against a couple of old Morse coders.

    Who won?

    The Morse Coders! by far.

    I went digging threw some videos of 2008 and 2009 competitions and answer a important question that always been debated.

    The fastest texters in the world us PHYSICAL keyboards. not that I expect that to shut up the touch screen crowd but it does show me that for fast accurate texting is physical keyboard for the win.
