Number neighbors, also known as “text door neighbors” are people whose phone numbers are “next to” each other. For example, the numbers (123)456-7890 and (123)456-7891 are number neighbors.

Recently a viral trend has been revived in which people text their number neighbors to see what happens and then post screenshots from these conversations online.
