It counts your messages on phone number (and even on all devices).

And it breaks them down into sent and received so you can see exactly how you’re using the app.

You will almost certainly have significantly more messages received as the balance is usually heavily tipped by group chats.

But it’s entirely possible that you still sent more than you received, making you a serious series writer.
