Depends who I'm talking to, when I'm talking formerly it's pretty similar. When I'm talking to my friends I swear more and use a lot of slang terms.

Nah not really. I use words when I type I don't normally use in spoken language. That's because I'm particularly lazy in real life.

You're not suppose to type or write the way you speak. 


Speech and writing are different and have their own characteristics. Speech has accents, dialects, pronunciations, voice tone, often accompanied by gestures, pauses and flow. Writing has rules, syntax, context, spelling, punctuation etc.
