Textastrophe is when a person sends a text with sensitive information to the wrong recipient. This action results in a social catastrophe, which leads to the "textastrophe" name, a combination of "text" and "catastrophe."
There are a number of ways you can cause a textastrophe. You could send an inappropriate picture of a body part to your mom, a gross joke to your aunt, or a TMI message to coworkers. The only way to prevent a textastrophe after sending the text is to get on the recipient's phone and delete the message before he or she sees it. A textplanation is usually required to put out the fires created by the textastrophe. The term appears in the "Textmergency" song featured in Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, a TV show on The CW.
