Pro tip: Get the best reception with the least noisy medium…

NY Times tech writer Nick Bilton wrote a great post about how we all get far too much email.   The overwhelming volume of email that people receive make email sometimes the worst way of getting ahold of someone.

So here’s my tip: I’ve found that by identifying the channel/medium that someone communicates on that has the least amount of noise and using that to message them can often bring the best results.    For example, with a lot of my friends, I can get ahold of them almost immediately through a DM on Twitter or a message on Facebook, where it could take days to hear back via email.

What tips have worked well for you to get ahold of someone?
