Scientific and technological progress brought to life a completely new means of communication that combines the functions of the phone with its ability to communicate in real time and a telegram with its written summary form, providing cost-effective communication at any time and from anywhere in the world. The Internet as an information and communication environment is used as a tool for communication and cognition. Language becomes not only a means of communication, but also a means of creating a virtual reality. Text messaging is a fundamentally new type of interpersonal communication, implemented using a specific communication channel. Technical characteristics of this channel have a direct impact on the design, length and methods of encoding texts of short messages. In the course of such communication, oral speech is used, transferred to a written format without a corresponding edition, with preservation of mimicry and intonation at the expense of written means. The language that serves communication on the Internet undergoes a transformation at the level of vocabulary, rules for constructing statements and a coherent text, genre-stylistic norms, the ratio of oral and written speech, communicative strategies and tactics. Spanish texting language, like texting in other languages, is creating its own sort of grammar and vocabulary using symbols of different semiotic systems, forming the phenomenon of telescoping, that is contraction of a phrase, word, or part of a word, reduction of a series of words to some of their component syllables. The growing popularity of electronic communication and its influence on the culture of writing and speaking ensured the urgency of the research. The aim of the research is to investigate the characteristics of the Spanish texting language, to systematize a set of lexical, grammatical and semiotic features of the language of electronic communication in Spanish and to analyze if the texting has a really negative effect on the literacy skills of students or a text whole arises under the influence of a certain set of extralinguistic and text forming factors. The methodological base of the research are communicative and discursive approaches, the linguistic concepts of creolized and polycode texts. The results of the research refer to the text in continuous connection with the situational context, which determines everything that is essential for generating this text, in connection with the system of communicative and pragmatic goals of the text author, interacting with the addressee. In this respect it becomes evident the distinction in text writing depending on different communicative situations external to the text. The research results may find use in further development of Internet Linguistics and the language of electronic communication.
