Abstract

In the early 1960s, the time-sharing computer at the System Development Corporation had several messaging commands through which remotely logged in users communicated with one another and the system operator. The SDC TSS capabilities appear to be the earliest documented implementation of text messaging and were in use before electronic mail was developed for time-sharing systems.
