I don't buy it. I couldn't accept that as true for the mean teenager, which is much less representative than the median teenager.

Of course it strikes me that there are experts on this thread...

Perhaps the mean is skewed somewhat by these guys, although, granted, they are not teenagers.

If you consider texts as any form of short message communication, twitter (god forbid), facebook, club penguin (an online game), bebo (the most popular one in Ireland), then 80 a day could well be a conservative estimate.
