Morse Code vs Text Message

As part of my exploration into the Victorian age for my steampunk ensemble, I inevitably came back to Morse Code. As a Cub Scout I learnt how to "pound brass" and send Morse messages with lights or sounders. I have lost this skill, but I may need it again if I'm to make a proper Airship Captain.

Through this research I found the following video on Youtube, where Morse Code is pitted against the fasted cellphone texter they could find. I won't give away the ending.
