Oh technology, you double-edged sword. You provide us with some of our favorite things: illegal music, constant communication, obsessive coverage of the greatest shows on television. (Yet you also bring us down with your crappy non-contributions to culture, like this and Miley Cyrus's Twitter— well, at least that's over.
Texting has made us put our dexterity to more exciting use than our opposable-thumbed predecessors, but it has also opened up approximately 937,382 more ways for us to do something humiliating, mean, dumb, or all of the above.

See where your actions fall on our highly scientific (read: basically arbitrary) spectrum of textellence. Is there something you love or hate that we left out? Let us know in the comments! Come up with something extra clever and we’ll give you a shout-out in our next piece.
