Second fastest texter in US getting documentary

By Brian Entin - email

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Believe it or not, a Pooler teenager is America's second fastest texter.

She won $10,000 at the National Championship in New York City and now 16 year old Erin Fink will be in a documentary on texting called "All Thumbs."

The crew was in downtown Savannah Sunday taping.

They followed Erin and her friends around and they are constantly texting!

Erin said this is just what they do.

"I hate talking on the phone. I always have. I've been texting off the bat ever since I got a phone. I've just gotten better at it I suppose because I've had a phone since the fourth grade." said Erin.

"Really it's a way for them to keep in touch with their friends and it's their thing. I think every generation needs their thing and for this generation it's texting." said Bill Couturie, director of "All Thumbs".

The documentary will air on MTV and won't focus just on text messaging, it's a look at the texting generation and the way they interact, Facebook included.

Erin said that for that competition, she was given a cell phone, blind folded, and told what to text message, symbols and all.

She won and now she is sort of a texting celebrity.
