Ashton Kutcher is a big fan of electronic flirting - he once planned sex with Demi Moore over a series of Twitpics, has tweeted a photo of her bikini-clad bottom.
He also allegedly used text messages such as "R U busy?" to schedule sex with purported mistress Brittney Jones.

There is some argument about who actually invented text messaging, but I think it's safe to say it was a man. Multiple studies have shown that the average man uses about half as many words per day as women, thus text messaging. It eliminates hellos and goodbyes and cuts right to the chase.

Sending sweet nothings on Twitter or Facebook is also fun. In some ways, it's no different than sending flowers to the office: You are declaring your love for everyone to see.
