“Mobile texting is now outstripping the use of email among the young. Michael Fitzpatrick reports.

The art of correspondence faces another rude shove towards oblivion: even email is under fire for being “too formal”.

Outside of work, SMS and instant messaging are fast becoming the writing tools of choice. Indeed, South Korea – that crystal ball of all our digital future – has even seen a report that many teenagers have stopped using email altogether.

‘It’s for old people,’ they say.”
