Arguing through text messages as apposed to arguing over the phone or in person, which can be more ackward if you have some real shit to say. Since it is not a verbal conversation, one might be more likely to speak their mind... One of the advantages of text messaging.
Or in the event that a disagreement comes up during a text session it may become an argument or "text battle"
John: wat up alex, wanna chill?
Alex: idk what u wanna do
John: anything. im at my girls house right now tho. wanna hang after that?
Alex: wtf man. y did u ask me 2 chill if ur busy u fuck.
John: well i wont be busy later. calm the f down dude i was just askin
Alex: u only wanna chill later cuz ur girl has a curfew & u cant hang with her then... dick.
John: screw u then
(A perfect example of a text battle.)
Sidenote- John is a dick.
Michael: dude lets go c the new batman movie
Tom: u dont even know batman
Michael: well im getting tickets. btw i fucking met batman
Tom: ur an idiot. btw who says that?
Michael: 4 real i met adam west who played batman on tv. he came to the mall when i was a kid. jackass.
(Michael will then send Tom a pic message of the photograph of batman that he got signed by Adam West at the mall when Michael was a little boy... Michael wins the argument or the "text battle")
Sidenote- Tom shouldn't run his mouth
maintaing text conversations with a number of people greater than 2 at any given time.
dude. I was at matt's party last night and i got into a 6 person text battle. It was brutal
The act of 2 people engaging in a conversation via text messaging with both parties goals being to text something so gross and disturbing that the other party is unable to respond. A text battle is spontaneous and starts with no warning. An ancillary goal is to give the enemy nightmares. A text battle is usually started with a single word text, or a short phrase, replied to with a similar, more gross phrase.
A text battles disturbing nature may result in an individual or group being monitored by a government agency, like the CIA or NSA.
How a text battle looks:
Person 1: "Fermunda Cheese"
Person 2: "Gleet Burger"
Person 1: "Yeast infection marinade"
Person 2: "Gangrene foot puree"
Person 1: "Mung milkshake"
Person 2: "That's gross man, leave me alone"
