Isn’t that basically what Robin is saying, though. Twitter is, along with other online messaging sites, based on the written word. Real life conversation includes many non-verbal cues, which are missing from posts on a forum/social networking website. I think you’re missing his point.I disagree. It’s definitely a creeping into society thing and I think it’s largely due to being able to call people out on (for example) twitter, surrounding yourself with people who feel the same and know will back you up.
