You might not have known, but Sunday the text message turned 25-years-old.
According to Mashable, the first text message was sent on December 2, 1992 from Neil Papworth, a former developer at Sema Group Telecoms.
Apparently, “back in the day,” mobile phones did not have keypads, so Papaworth typed the first ever message on a PC.
Papworth’s first message truly celebrated the holiday season. It was “Merry Christmas,” and was sent successfully to a friend and Vodafone employee Richard Jarvis.
