Last night I received 2 funny texts from DiS'ers:
'I'm watching FOTL at Barfly. They just did a birthday shoutout to Tony Yeboah'
From: Joey 10:05pm
'God Barry Ferguson is such a fucking twat. I wonder what I've done to deserve having to watch shit Scotland peformances' From: Brooner 6:48pm
So here are some facts about the art of the text message:
Short Messaging Service was invented during the 1980s as a method of communication for engineers building the mobile network.
The number of SMS messages sent by British mobile users topped a record 25 billion - that's equivalent to 416 for every man, woman and child.
An estimated 22 - 25 million text messages were sent on Valentine's Day in 2001, though the majority were good-will gestures rather than expressions of unrequited love
