The problem with the written word is that it is so easy to be misunderstood. I fall into this group, whether it be my posts, twits or emails.
How do you deal with being misunderstood online? What do you do to ensure that you are not misunderstood in emails/blog posts/twits?
One thing I have started doing is using emoticons. I find them really important in helping to communicate tone maybe the 14yr IM loving Julian Cole was onto something.
