Teenagers spend a good chunk of their time on their cell phones—Tweeting, updating their Facebook and sending each other text messages in short, often unintelligible bursts.
But some say texting actually make them better writers.
We bet it's even easier when the essays are entitled "OMG LOL."
According to Savage, the more writing you do, even a text at a time, the better writer you'll be.
Kids who don't read a lot of books still have to use written language on a daily basis, through e-mail, blogs, texting, and social media websites, reports WBBM NewsRadio.
With hundreds of text messages a day, perhaps teens can develop a special aptitude for writing.
Just don't ask them to spell 'aptitude.'
