1: The finger version of phone tag.

2: When you text back and forth without getting to the next step - having an actual phone call or meeting in real time. This written banter can lead to frustration if a phone call or meeting is delayed.
Text Message Sent: I'm sick of playing thumb-tag. For all I know you dirty dog could be texting me!

Text Message Received: Did you just call me a dirty dog? RRRuff ruff!

Text Message Sent: How about calling me instead? I don't bark like that dog of yours. :)

Since the sender texts people too often, her spelling stamina started to decline. She wrote "you" instead of "your", not knowing she referred to her friend as a dog. Her friend (receiver) then acts like he was insulted so he can provoke the sender to text more. The sender realizes the receiver is playing thumb tag and declares that she wants to use her voice instead.
