The best way to communicate with someone is the way they want to be communicated with. Some people love text messages, some emails, others phone calls. If you are trying to reach out to someone you need to figure out their preference and use it. Using your preference may not get you too far.
For example, trying to have a text conversation with me is useless. I don’t have the attention span for it or the desire to take 20 minutes typing messages that could have been relayed in a 2 minute conversation. Also, thanks to Twitter, I’m used to ignoring my phone when it beeps because more likely than not it’s a random tweet. If you want to get in touch with me I suggest another approach, something that reduces the chance my ADD will kick in.
