Are Pinoys the fastest texters?

Apparently no…

From CNN, Ben Cook, an 18-year old from Utah, ” returned to the top of the cell phone text-messaging heap Friday at a Denver text-off, blazing through a 160-character standardized message in 42.22 seconds.”

The message was 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.”

Cook in 2004 snagged the world record by texting the official phrase in 57.75 seconds, a record that soon fell. Before Cook’s feat Friday, the record was held by a 23-year-old woman from Singapore at 43.24 seconds, which was set on June 27, 2004.

Pinoys probably would have won, but I think they texted this:

D razr 2ted piranas f d genera Serasalmus n Pigocentrus r d most ferocus freswatr fsh n d wrld. N reali3 dey sldm atak a u man
