A walking advertisement for Swype, you’ve likely heard that Melissa Thompson broke the world record for the fastest text message and is awaiting approval for the new Guinness World Record. Originally set by Franklin Page, he texted, “the razor-toothed piranhas of the genera Serrasalmus and Pygocentrus are the most ferocious freshwater fish in the world. In reality they seldom attack a human” in a speedy 35.54 seconds. Melissa Thompson shaved over 9 seconds off his time, clocking in at 25.94 seconds for the same text. Of course she gives all the credit to Swype saying:
“It’s a real shock to find out that I’m the fastest texter in the world. But using Swype helped. Everyone should give it a go and see how easy it is.”
Now check out the above video where Thompson’s record is now smashed by about 3 seconds from a random YouTuber who finds Thompson’s record unimpressive. Cue the endless amount of videos from all devices, proving Melissa ain’t all that. Can you beat her? Give it a go and let us know how fast you can text.
