Dallas, Texas – Adult texting is steadily on the rise. As reported by The 33 News, data from the Pew Research Center suggests 72 percent of adults engage in the practice and are trailing teens in the number of texts they send out each day.
Dallas Resident Alise Palatte is quoted in the report as stating of the subject, “We’re texting all the time, texting our friends, texting finding out what’s going on. We’re just as busy as teens, probably more so.”
Some reportedly credit advances in technology with making it easier for some to engage in the practice. Texter Cathal Grant is further quoted as stating, “The reason I started texting is when I got the iPhone I could use the key pad, where as before you had to use the phone number things, and that was very difficult.”
