Typical mobile phone users will send 2 mn words of SMS` in their lifetime
London: A new study has revealed that a typical mobile phone user will send 2million words of text messages in their lifetime.
According to Metro, a life`s worth of texting is even longer than War And Peace, which is just 591,000 words in comparison, and one could even punch out the Oxford English dictionary six times or the complete works of Shakespeare twice.
The research by Net Voucher Codes found that the average person sent four messages a day with each text about 20 words long, which equates to more than 30,000 words a year.
Researchers predict this would total 1,993,200 if someone texted friends from their mid-teens to the age of 80.
Net Voucher Codes spokesman said that adults in their twenties are the first generation to have grown up with mobile phones and most likely will be using them well into old age.
He further added that this will probably increase for younger generations as they become more reliant on instantaneous communication, the report added.
