the observance of a commonly held code of courteous text messaging etiquette.
Dude! You are decimating my free text message
allowance with your txt tlk commentary on the status of your fucktarded
observations on life. Get some textiquette already!
the proper behavior one should use when texting i.e. responding promptly or the correct use of lol
brooke: god why does it take so long for taylor to text back?
jackie: that's because she has really poor textiquette
being polite when text messaging: no spamming, be short, go easy on capitals, be personal. watch for double meanings (is LOL "laugh out loud" or "lots of love"? could get you punched in the nose!) and no text overload or you might move onto the world of "textual harassment".
Right textiquette: ILU! CU l8tr!
Wrong textiquette: I love you I love you I love you please see me OMG I think we should be 2gether. Did you get this text? Call me! LU! LOL! IXXXXXU!
The etiquette used when texting people, especially people you've just met or that just don't know you very well.
