The top guns in text messaging are mostly teenagers, but some California teens recently got the challenge of their young lives from a librarian in her late 20s.
She took them on in the finals of a national speed-texting competition.
"I wasn't nervous because I was the oldest competitor, I was nervous because I hadn't really practiced on the phone. We had to use the LG ENV phone for the competition. As you can see, I'm used to using an iPhone," said speed-texting librarian Joanna Axelrod.
She went all the way to the semifinals of LG Electronics' national, expenses-paid, texting competition in New York.
She missed out on the top three, but while the winner got $50,000, Joanna didn't come home empty-handed.
"We got $300 just for coming and competing, and I got a jacket which I can show you, which is at my desk. I have a little logo wear. And the poster. And, the fame and fortune that's come from my 15 minutes of fame," she laughed.
