The ‘Northern Territory News’ (NT News) is the only daily newspaper available in the NT. It has a readership of approximately 48,000 Monday to Friday and 59,000 on Saturday. Almost half of the population in Darwin (45.8%) read the NT News each week. The NT News also has a ‘Txt the Editor’ section in every edition. It is really, well – something.
Here are two examples of ‘Txt the Editor’ submissions published in yesterday’s NT News:
“As for us men not being good anuff for
the ladys up here. Their just 2 fussy.
Get ur head out the air and get back 2 earth.

“Cant believe how gamen sum of these
