Fastest Thumb in the West

I used to text a lot when I was in the Philippines. Texting was a cheaper way of getting in touch. When I moved here in the USA, calling friends are easier than texting. In fact, I find it hard to text now.

When it comes to texting, Kate Moore, a lively 16-year-old high school sophomore from Des Moines, Iowa is the USA's fastest hand. She represented America in the World Texting Championship and won the second prize. She and her team mate were second to team Korea.

Moore's messaging habit has won her $60,000 in prize money -- not to mention fame both at home and abroad -- in less than a year. She will be defending her title at the 2010 US championship.
