U R dumped.

Another example of me being woefully behind the times.
"Over one third of 2,000 people polled (34 percent) said they had ended a relationship by email, 13 percent had changed their status on Facebook without telling their partners and six percent had released the news unilaterally on Twitter." That, by my calculations, is over HALF of the survey who ended a relationship via the internet.
Is there some sort of etiquette guide for this? In a relationship that has lasted over 2 weeks, Facebook is acceptable, but Twitter is not? Emails preferred for relationships lasting over 3 months? How about if you've never actually met the person and your entire relationship has taken place solely online? Is a tweet okay for ending that?
