You talk about their day... weather... what your doing at the moment or what your doing later... ask about their interests and they respond and you respond to them with your interests and your view on their interests.
.. talk about news that is happening.
I'm on a phone right now typing all this btw. =P Seriously though it's about knowing the people you text and what you want them to know of you.

Ya, if you don't know the person well you just have to kind of relay the randomness of your current experiences until the other person clicks and says "Oh ya, the same thing happend to me!", or whatever. It's hard, but don't put too much thought into it. I like to relay the thoughts of my internal monologue (censored a bit or course).

I don't really know how to help you with texting etiquette, but I do know of an interesting way to spend time.

Just sit back and watch people who walk and text bang into stuff. It's very entertaining. They just walk along....and....bam! Right into another person..

Friends don't let friends walk while texting.
