Is texting killing the English Language?

'There have been some recent articles about how the language of texting is damaging the English Language. Whether you agree or not with this view, the language of texting is here to stay. Most of us live through our smartphones and I have to say that even I, an English Language Trainer, use text language when sending SMSs.' - Shanthi Cumaraswamy Streat, a freelance English Language Trainer, author of The World is Your Oyster.
