When one party in a text-message conversation chooses to reply with extremely short, vague sentences in order to try and kill the conversation and end communication with the opposing texter.
An Example of Short-Texting:
Texter1: Hey omg so you totally looked really hot today at the mall hahaha
Texter1: Omg so anyways do you like the band coldplay?
Texter1: Oh okay thats okay so whats up?
Texter1 has just been Short-Texted.
