Mined Expanders

Now this is kinda cool. An entire novel written only in text messages, a text of texts, only the Finnish! To maintain accuracy, the texts are “rife with grammatical errors and abbreviations commonly used in regular SMS traffic,” which is quite clever, if you can stomach it for 332 pages.

I often wonder what it would be like to receive a text message from a novelist like, say, Dickens, who was always using technology to push literature forward:
“Electric comm will nevr b a sub 4 the face of some1 who w/ their soul encourges anothr persn 2 b brave & tru.”
