I prefer to talk than text and here's why: I could never figure out the short hand to texting besides the usual lol and lmao so my text messages would always be long if I'm having a conversation with someone and by the time I get ready to respond to the previous topic they have sent me another text about something else. It seems with texting I am always a text behind.
I do appreciate texting when I just want to say a few words like "hey" or "see you later" but besides that I have to talk. I think it may have something to do with the fact that I like to talk a lot. (or so I've been told)
I do appreciate platforms like Twitter because it has helped me master saying something with only 140 characters. Since I've been tweeting, my texting skills have evolved.
