World Leaders Text Obama: "OMG, UDM BFF!!! XOXOXO"

WASHINGTON, DC -- (CNN -- Cyberspace News Network) -- As Barack Obama clinched the presidency of the United States in a decisive election victory, politicians around the world have been sending him their well wishes and congratulations.

Instead of using traditional modes of communication such as telephone or letter, however, this time world leaders are proving their technological savvy by taking up their BlackBerries and iPhones instead. President-elect Obama has been inundated by a flood of effusively congratulatory text messages. CNN is able to confirm that the majority of these texts contain one or more of the following words: "BFF!!!!," "OMG, "UDM," and "XOXOXOXO." The remaining 1% consisted solely of smiley-face emoticons.

These text messages are overall nearly identical to texts sent to Obama from members of the press.
