Does this make you feel old? Monday marks the 20th anniversary of the first-ever text message.
A man named Neil Papworth sent the first text using a computer terminal to send the message to a colleague's cellphone. It read "Merry Christmas."
Texting had a slow start, but eventually it surged in popularity, especially when it became cheaper than calling.
Even today it is the single most-widely used application in the world with some 81 percent of mobile phone users typing away. It has also made text lingo like LOL (laugh out loud) mainstream language, especially among teens.
However, just like everything else in the tech world, text messaging is actually declining because free alternatives like instant messaging apps are becoming more popular.
