One thing I love about text chat in instant messengers is I can carry on two simultaneous conversation threads with a person at the same time. I write something on topic A, and while waiting for my friend to respond I say something about topic B. When he's done responding to topic A and waiting for me, he can start talking about topic B. Back and forth, ABABAB. Two conversations interwoven, very natural.
