I am doing a research project to identify some patterns in how people interact with each other using text messages. The scope of the project is confined to American users. Can someone suggest a good place to find a corpus for American SMS/text messages for my experiment?

I know that NUS Singapore has an SMS corpus, but on careful observation, I realized that the messages in that corpus do not generate from American users.

I don't know a corpus, but I know a way to create one. If you know how to program you can use the Facebook API and download all the public facebook status from USA with their comments. Then you can use them as a corpus.
