    Literally Just 19 Tweets For People Who Are Bad At Texting

    "I'm a bad texter who hates bad texters."

    1. Oh, the life of a bad texter.

    Me opening a text just to get rid of the notification:

    2. There are a number of reasons one might suck at texting, whether it's laziness...

    3. ...Or forgetfulness...

    4. ...Or simply not wanting a conversation to escalate into anything past some texts.

    5. What some folks don't realize, is that being self-aware of your poor texting habits can be nerve-racking.

    6. You know that, often times, people will assume that your sucking at texting means you also suck at friendship.

    7. Or they might think you're just a dull individual who can't hold a conversation.

    8. Even worse, they could think that you're not interested in texting them specifically.

    9. When your friends think you keep your phone on you 24-7, they're hard-pressed to believe that you simply forgot to respond.

    10. Sometimes they'll call you out subtly.

    11. Other times they'll go directly to you to voice their complaints.

    12. If you dare to read their message without responding, you could be in for an onslaught of follow-up texts.

    13. And if you take too long, they might be fed up with you by the time you respond.

    14. Sometimes, you'll even be horrified in how long it takes you to finish basic text interactions.

    15. Especially when it's as simple as responding to generic holiday greetings.

    16. It can feel very hypocritical, because you knowingly fail to text people the way you want to be texted.

    17. It's fine, though, you'll keep making that half-hearted effort, whether it means sending short texts...

    18. ...Or just dropping one-word texts in a group message.

    19. Because, even if you're bad at texting, it probably just means you're not rudely occupied by your phone during face-to-face interaction — and that's what matters most!
