A Wave of Messages Delivered Months Late

If you woke up on Thursday welcomed by a weird text message, you’re not alone. Overnight, a mysterious wave of missive swept America’s phones, and largely unintelligible messages were sent to families, friends, and past relationships. The messages seem to have been sent on or around Valentine’s Day.

Friends who hadn’t talked to each other in months were jolted into chatting. Others briefly panicked.

The best explanation seems to be that old texts sent in the spring suddenly went through. Two people said they figured out the original messages were never received. It’s not clear why this months-long delay happened. Phone companies blamed others and offered no further explanations.

Now that’s slower than snail mail.
