£2,100 for fastest texting teen

Sweden has a new fastest texter: it’s 17 year old student My Svensson, who beat her nearest rival by seven seconds to win the SMS Swedish Championship in Stockholm, according to RTE News.

To claim the title, Svensson rattled out a 141 character SMS in 61 seconds. To soothe her aching thumbs, Svensson will take home a 25,000 krona (about £2,100) – which might just cover the bill for the 40 to 50 SMS she sends every day to her three best friends to practice her skills.
