Do you know teens who can’t get enough of texting while they’re awake?
Some, apparently, text unconsciously in the middle of the night. It’s like sleepwalking, but potentially more amusing.
Villanova University professor Elizabeth Dowdell says it’s becoming more common for teens to answer a text while they're still sleeping, and when they wake up they have no memory of it.
Studies show that a typical sleep-texting teen can send return messages in either real words or gibberish nonsense.
