Happy 25th, texting! The very first text was sent December 3rd, 1992. Over the weekend it marked 25 years of SMS! The first SMS (Short Message Service), or text message, was sent from a computer to a mobile phone on Dec. 3, 1992 by Neil Papworth. He is a U.K. software developer, who now resides in Canada!
In the beginning, texting wasn’t overly popular. It cost you extra if you wanted to send one, and also took way too long. Now, it seems to be one of our most popular ways of communication.
