The first SMS message was sent on December 3rd, 1992, and thus, texting was born. The inaugural message was a very simple “Merry Christmas.” Hardly foreshadowing of the technological revolution to come, but with a few adjustments here and there, text messaging has since become a global phenomenon.

A heartfelt appreciation is shared amongst the billions of avid texters worldwide—although there has been an increase in carpal tunnel, many awkward phone calls have been avoided. So, here’s a salute to the text message and it’s 21st anniversary!

Whether you <3 it, or h8 it—Say it in Six and share your caption with us today!

Submissions accepted through Friday, December 6, 5pm EST.
