Depends of the subject the conversation, if it’s about a big plan I prefer to talk by a call, but if it’s just a meet or something basic , I will rather text for sure

When I make plan with my friends we send lots of messages to each other. But I prefer to speak when make plan. Because sending a lot of message is waste time for me.

I prefer to send a massage if my friend is far away to me. Also in massages I don't use any abbreviations because I think ridiculous. İf you make short a word Why don't you make short others? At that time we make a sentence just abbreviations.Like''GAS 2U! DQMOT, BSF IDK WCA 2TXT W/LOA.
