The radio host asked listeners how they feel about phone calls, text messages, WhatsApp voice notes and "bluetick" notifications.

Listeners called in and sent tweets about phone call anxiety and their preferred means of communication.

I prefer phone calls and I prefer meeting people over WhatsApp groups.

Barnie, caller

I totally disagree. I think phone calls are very important because you cannot really tell how a person is feeling via text... I don't allow people to leave voice messages on my phone.

Mmabatho, caller

I actually prefer both calls and text.

Nozukho, caller

Any voicenote that is longer than a minute is actually a podcast!
