Break a World Record – Win an iPod Touch
A world record is defined as the best global performance ever recorded in any verified skill or sport. These achievements often range from the best and worst human achievements, to extremes in the natural world and beyond. Recently we heard that the someone had broken the world record for fastest texting and we got an idea…
Why not invite YOU, The TextNow Nation, to try and break the record yourselves – And then we thought, why not give away an iPod touch while were at it!
To break the world record, Guinness requires you to text the following phrase in 25.94 seconds or less:
“The razor-toothed piranhas of the genera Serrasalmus and Pygocentrus are the most ferocious freshwater fish in the world. In reality they seldom attack a human.”
So do you have what it takes – Are you ready for the fame, fortune and glory of being a world record holder?
- Create a video of you typing the phrase above in the TextNow application. Post the video on YouTube and name it “TextNow’s Fastest Texter – Record Breaking Attempt”. * NOTE: Please make sure there is some sort of stop watch in your video so that we can keep track of the time!
- Share the video with your friends and family – The video with the most views by December 20th will win a Brand New iPod Touch!
- You can also enter the fastest texter giveaway for 5000 TextNow credits by posting your video on the TextNow facebook page. These Credits can be used to both unlock TextNow enhancements as well as place ad-free phone calls.
That’s it! So what are you waiting for?! - Go break a world record!
