What country is the texting capital of the world?

It is difficult to pinpoint one specific country as the "texting capital of the world" as it can vary depending on how you measure it. However, the Philippines is often considered as the texting capital of the world, due to its high penetration rate of mobile phones and the popularity of text messaging among Filipinos as a primary means of communication.

According to a study by the market research firm Nielsen, Filipinos send an average of around 900 text messages per month, which is the highest in the world. This high usage rate is attributed to the widespread availability of mobile phone services in the country, even in remote areas, as well as the relatively low cost of text messaging compared to other forms of communication.

It's also worth noting that other countries have high usage of text messaging or other forms of messaging services, like for example Japan with Line, South Korea with KakaoTalk, or China with WeChat.
