I am so used to fitting all the guts of my communications into 140 characters and that is flowing on to other communications channels. Since using Twitter my emails are shorter and more to the point, particularly with people I know well.
When I write an email, I keep asking myself - Do I really need to bother writing
- Hi Such and Such,
- How are you?
- Kind Regards, James
I think that dispensing with some formalities saves me time and helps the reader get straight to my point?
But will my pithy emails be perceived as rude?
What do you think?
