Most of the technique used in writing is trying to truncate the word into simple forms. Some letters are omitted thinking that the reader will automatically place them between consonants. Capital letters are used when wanting to have a harder vowel sound (eg. capital 'O' when the sound is to be like 'owe'). Numbers written out into actual words are exchanged with numeric symbols, and the letter 3 takes the place of the double 'e' sound in several places. This is used more in internet 'l33t spk' rather than texting, and was included for humor. That also includes the replacement of the with 'teh'.
