Ppl of america tlk to me (txt me!!!)
from a 425 phone number, Monday, June 9, 7:00 PM

This is a very modern statement. In the age of youtube, myspace, etc., it's not seen as totally ridiculous for any cell phone-owning adolescent to address the "ppl of america." But had someone written a sentence like this in the year 1864, her friends and family all would have been like, "Um, 'ppl of america tlk to me'? Do you mean, like, 'ppl who live in our small fishing community'?"
