Modern communications mean that it’s no longer necessary to write letters. To what extent do you agree or disagree with this statement?

Letter, the main mode of
communication
during the 20th century, has been replaced by modern
communication
channels
such
as mobile, emails,
etc
and
hence
it is no longer necessary to write letters.
This
essay agrees with the above mentioned argument. We will
first
discuss the reasons for letters becoming a necessity and
then
delve into the reasons for modern
communication
replacing letters as a necessity. Before the 20th century, due to lack of other options, letters were the primary source of information exchange between individuals, parties, companies, etc. It was the only channel of
communication
, through which, information could be shared over longer distances.
For example
, one could reach out to relatives living in other countries through letters. Since telephones were really
costy
entailing great loss or sacrifice
costly
cosy
crusty
,
hence
, the only choice left for
communication
was letters. But, with the introduction of modern
communication
channels
such
as mobile, emails,
etc
continuing in the same way
etc.
, letters started losing their position of prime importance. Due to issues
such
as longer time of travel between
recepients
a person who receives something
recipients
, human errors involved in transportation and cost, letters soon lost their importance.
For example
,
instead
of writing a letter and waiting for a response from the
receipient
a person who receives something
recipient
, which might take weeks, one can easily call over a mobile or write an email and get an instantaneous response.
Also
, the cost associated with modern
communication
channels reduced significantly over the years. To sum up, letters were necessary during older times because of lack of other options. But, with new technology entering our daily life and being able to be much cheaper than letters, letters have been replaced as being the necessary channel for information exchange.
