Twenty Years of Text Messaging

Sunday, December 2, 2012 - 11:04pm

Tomorrow will mark a special day in the world of text messaging.

It will be the 20th anniversary of the first text message sent to a mobile phone.

British Engineer Neil Papworth did the honors when he was 22 years old.  He sent the message "Merry Christmas" from his computer to his friend's mobile phone.

That was back on December 3, 1992 and text messaging has come a long way since then.
