First, it was the end for full stops and now it seems that the apostrophe days are numbered too?

“There has been a systematic shift not only towards more informal vocabulary but also towards more informal grammar… There has been a very noticeable drop in the use of apostrophes” — Dr. Brezina, Lancaster University

Unlike the dropping of full stops in text messages due to Generation Z seeing them as rude, the apostrophe has been dropped for brevity, ease, and speed.
