In one of the recent posts in a google blog google talked about reducing the number of letters so as to reduce pollution as each character transmitted is responsible for emission of 0.0000000000000000034 metric tons* of CO2.
It had even provided a talkback client to learn the abbreviated form of texting.
You can practise for shortening your messages here.If your friend tells an abbreviation that you can not understand then you can enter that in the client and it will provide you the full word.
