1. A specific form of language and word formation used almost exclusively in texting and internet discussions. Text speech is comprised of everyday American English that has been heavily fragmented and shortened. Typical text speech has a number techniques in it's use, including:

-inserting numbers of equivalent pronunciation, e.g. 2 = to,
-abbreviations, e.g. appt = appointment,
-famous acronyms such as LOL, FTW, WTF, IMHO, etc.

Making words from symbols, like the following, is not considered text speech.
1|= y()u (4|\| r3@d 7#5, y0|_| /\r3 @ IVI0/\/$+3|2 &33|<

While the general purpose of text speech is to make conversations as short and easy as possible, in some rare cases it can develop such a specific dialect that it's impossible for those who encouter it for the first time to decipher it without help.

2. 'Text speech' could also be used to mean that fucking annoying habit some people have when they phonetically pronounce text acronyms during a normal phone conversation.
