Technology and English

I have always loved the English language, but with the advent of technology like SMS, Twitter, etc. where there is a limitation on no. of characters, the language is at its all time low. Is it just technology or sheer laziness on our part. I hate it when ‘you’ is written as ‘u’ or ‘are’ as ‘r’. My question is whether you type 1 character or 3, how much time does it take. In fact if you have your predective text enabled, ‘you’ is easier to type than ‘u’.

Fine, if you have to twitter or SMS use your abbrevieated language, but emails and blogging etc. don’t have that constraint, so next time when you email, use the Queen’s English please…or when you email me…please use it.
