A northern California teen is taking texting to the extreme, sending more than 300,000 messages in just one month. With all of that typing how does the 18-year-old Sacramento girl have time to do anything else?
18-year-old Crystal Wiski may have the fastest hands in the West.
Just how fast? 303,398 text messages sent and received all in one month. Don't believe it? Well the faster than life thumb action doesn't lie, and neither does the bill.
Crystal's mother, Jacki, says she just bought the iPhone for her daughter a month ago.
Needless to say, it didn't take long for her to get use to it.
Her mother said "oh my God that's unbelievable! She must text while she's sleeping."
Crystal said "I am popular, I cant help it."
To put 303,000 text messages into perspective, that's more than 10,000 text messages a day, 421 messages an hour, and 7 texts a minute. And yes we even timed her.
Crystal said "I don't talk on the phone that much."
Needless to say our interview wasn't without interruption.
Mom says despite the thumb addiction it doesn't stop her from holding down a full time job or effect her grades.
Jacki said "she has a 40 hour week job, straight A's both my daughter."
As for Crystal she says she graduates in few weeks, and hasn't decided what's next, but you can bet, she'll text her decision faster than you can say OMG.
