Short message and attention span sometimes helps with language barriers

For many critics, micro-blogging, tweeting, text messaging and status updates are poor ways to communicate. For me is one of the best ways to communicate and being more productive. There is no “fluff” or irrelevant “stuff”. These messages get to the point. I have seen this evolution with email as people send more emails from their phones. The emails are 1 line sentences. One of the main reason I love it is the ability to respond to people in different languages. In the past I would received a long email and I would use a translation website to translate the message. In most cases it would be a poor translation or the email had too much “fluff” to understand it. Too many questions asked. With the condensed on liners I can quickly translate. I can then use a translation tool to convert my quick one line response.
