Email vs Text Messaging - it's all permanent

So, I think I figured out why everyone likes using SMS (text messaging) over email.

I like email because it's platform agnostic, produces a "igotacopy-yougotacopy" paper trail that's proven really hard to eliminate by people smarter than I.

Other people like SMS because their contacts are much more limited compared to email, there's no subject-line, and they think it's transitory. It's not, according to;

  1. The NSA.
  2. Your cell service provider.
  3. Me. Because I've mastered the screenshot function...
Oh, look, here's Google Photos, that will keep it forever, for free.
