New Fastest Texting Record Set by Teen

Thirteen-year-old National Texting Champion Morgan Pozgar may be able to type "supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" in fifteen seconds, but the real question is — can she do it blindfolded? Elliot Nicholls, a 17-year-old from Dunedin, New Zealand has set a new record for speed texting without looking at the screen.

According to Spluch, Nicholls was able to text "The razor toothed piranhas of the genera serrasalmus and pygocentrus are the most ferocious freshwater fish in the world. In reality, they seldom attack a human" in a record breaking 45 seconds without any mistakes.

Once his texting record is ratified, he may just get his name in the Guinness Book of Records for being the world's fastest texter. Check out the video to see him in action. Do you want to learn how to text faster? Check out geeksugar's tips on how to become a text-message champion!

Read the first paragraph again. There's two different champions. 13 year old Morgan Pozgar is the Nat'l Texting Champion. After that, the story is about the 17 year old boy, Elliot Nicholls, who holds the record for texting *without looking*. BTW, I suck at texting.

Um there are two different sentences. One says this is a she, the other a he. Which one is it? Also this is nothing to be proud of. So that person can text fast, wow big deal.

being able to text that fast isnt something i would be proud of, it probably makes ppl believe i do nothing else but text 24/7.

is this really something for someone to be proud of? i was once told by a random stranger i seemed adept at texting, and i made sure he knew i wasn't because i was embarassed by that comment.
