Premature articulation! You win at life, my friend. You totally win! :)
I understand if you're on the fly and have to get something out, but it doesn't have any place in regular communication, in my opinion.

I saw it in this questions forum thing by someone who claimed to be a professional writer. I hope they know that it bites them in the butt. I wouldn't hire them to write for me if I saw that!
What would you do if their comment itself made sense, and was an intelligent response, despite the colloquialism?

If it were just kids, I might not be so bothered by it. Even people my age do it regularly (I'm in my 40's). My grandmother was an English teacher, and she's probably rolling in her urn!

I don't tweet often, but I do text. And it takes me forever to do it because I don't use this text speak at all. Thank you for your answer!

It makes me think of those abbreviated story challenges, where writers have to tell a whole story in 100 words or less. If they can do it... ;)

I think it goes back to the days before unlimited texts... Having to fit as much into 1 message as possible?

Did I read somewhere that they're going to increase the tweet length? That would be nice, in my opinion. :)
I hope it gets a reverse, too, but I can only see it increasing. :(

I have a friend that is my age (41) who only updates her Facebook with this text talk. Unfortunately lots of people do it, and I have seen it here on HP, which is a community of writers.
