Recent research has shown that millennial population is 90% responsive to text messaging vs. telephone calls or e-mails with 3 minutes. Is there research that demonstrates any impact texting has on literacy? As a dyslexic  and a child with dyslexia I have seen their tendency to be more comfortable texting with friends vs. e-mail. Curious any sources of research?

technology is perhaps putting more emphasis on reading and writing than one might think per this article and young people are able to toggle between different situations and adjust formality and language accordingly
