All thumbs has always meant clumsy, but it has new meaning in the age of hand-held smart phones. The term now relates to a poor speller in text responses. Given the relative small size of keyboards, and the fact that people are texting only with thumbs, this can lead to many typos. These typos are often compounded with auto-correct, making them worse. 'All thumbs' seems to plague guys with large hands more than women.

Severe pain in the thumb of each hand due to texting with hand-held devices that can send and receive email. This condition will creep up on the user over time and cause reduced motion of the thumbs. In severe cases, the user may loose the ability to communicate.
Bummer, I can barely text anymore as my creeping thumb-all syndrome has damaged my thumb joints.
