The New Yorker ran a cartoon by Roz Chast along similar lines entitled" 
The I.M.s of Romeo and Juliet (Romeo and Juliet chat via Instant 
Messenger)."

ID: 47412, Published in The New Yorker February 4, 2002.

You can see it and other New Yorker cartoons online at

A 2004 Nextel commercial showed a hilarious performance of Romeo and 
Juliet reduced mostly to single words said by the actors to their cell 
phones and each other.

Hardy M. Cook writes, "2b?Ntb? Shakespeare sent by text...Some of the 
world's most famous works of literature have been rewritten as text 
messages so that students can read them quickly before exams...But 
author Oliver Kamm says he's worried it'll make kids lazy when it comes 
to reading."

That, and writing.  The most notable examples are "thru" for "through" 
and "alright" for "all
right."  It starts with the *word.*
