on Having a serious conversation on BBM or Twitter or ...

It is simply not possible. Signal is too short, the lag is too long and the visual and audio cues that humans rely on are not there.

Or at least it isn't possible for me. I invariably say something in a less than artful manner and by the time I get things put the way that I originally meant them my conversational partner will be a) confused or b)Hurt or c)angry.

Not moderated but I do delete spam and I would rather that people not act like assholes.
