How the world and modern society has changed with the invention of the mobile telephone, but really the art of talking or speaking on the telephone was quickly replaced with the use of mobiles, to send text messages or “SMS” short messaging service. Sarkasmus
I believe that cultural barriers, and access to the English language have been opened up, purely by the phenomenon of SMS, and you may not believe it but, it was only twenty years ago that the first text message was sent. A whole new language has evolved and shortened versions of common words have become the language of the world. To the extent today that short messages are one of the biggest communication tools of the modern world and even a giant media tool like in the form of Twitter.
As with all things that are simple to use and cultural barrier free, the simple text message is used by all the people of the world, about seven billion of them. The language barrier has been broken, with abbreviations and slang used by people of all nations and countries. Thanks to simple text messages, we can all communicate together as one big world.
