As I wrote in my post “Texting and Twitter – new languages?” these forms of communication have created a shorthand new language. Here is a fun look at how an old message would be written in the 21st century.
If God had texted the Ten Commandments to Moses:
1. nol b4 me. Srsly.
2. dnt wrshp pix/idols
3. no omg’s
4. no wrk on w/end (sat 4 now; sun l8r)
5. pos ok – ur m&d r cool
6. dnt kill ppl
7 :-X only w/ m8
8. dnt steal
9. dnt lie re: bf
10. don’t ogle ur bf’s m8. or ox. or dnkey. Myob
