Sprint is reporting that it saw a 255 percent increase in text message traffic after Sen. Barack Obama sent out a text message to supporters to announce his running mate, Sen. Joe Biden, at 3 a.m. Saturday.

According to wireless association CTIA, more than 48 billion text messages were sent each month in the United States as of December 2007. Sprint reports its customers sent and received more than 70 billion text messages during the first half of 2008.
