Speaking only from my own observations, the quick chatty
time-wasting email sequences seem to have migrated to
SMS/Twitter/whatever, like kids (or others with nothing
better to do) on the phone all the time.  But I would say
email was not a good way to do that anyhow, it just seemed
cheaper than old phone calls used to be before wide
existence of personal phone devices (cell phones).  As far
as I see, email is still used for stuff that takes thought
or attention or responsibility, even though it may be sent
using the same smart phone as is used for texting/tweeting/whatever.
