When you're texting (via your cell phone or an IM program on your computer) and you're being bombarded with legitimate texts from other people (ie you're stuck in multiple conversations, and can't seem to respond to one without at least one or two more sending you messages while you're trying to respond to a first message).

The spaceless, timeless dimension where lost texts exist until they re-enter the universe and arrive in your cell phone inbox; a hopeless, senseless text conversation in which one or both participants is repeatedly unable to determine the meaning and direction of the conversation despite all attempts to get the conversation back on track

1. the phenomenon that can occur after meeting someone and exchanging numbers in hopes of actually meeting face to face at some later point in time. but what ends up happening is just infinite text message only communication. Actual phone calls are useless because the other person prefers to only comunicate by texting.
