Brooklyn, NY - A girl proved Tuesday that she has the fastest thumbs in the country.

Brianna Hendrickson, 13, out-texted her competitors in the National Texting Championship.

She beat out 50,000 people to win $50,000 for charity and $50,000 for herself.

“It feels so good cause my little brother, today was his birthday. And I didn’t see him today or yesterday, or Sunday, so I was like, ‘I’m going to do it for my brother.’ And I didn’t think I was actually going to do it, but I did,” Hendrickson said.

Brianna, who is from East New York, Brooklyn, says she sends about 6,000 texts a month.

But don’t worry, she has unlimited texting.

I'm not too thrilled about all this texting. The kids get addicted to it and then text while driving even though their parents tell them not to.
