I think it is clear that the person was upset because he was not informed. The poster even admitted that when he wrote:

Now, if he had just asked me, face to face, why the schedule change, I would have explained and we wouldn't have had this drama.

So instead of blaming him change in the above sentence if he had just asked me, face to face into if I had just emailed and texted him.
Not the same. The guy was upset not because he was not informed. It was because he did not have his ego properly massaged.

Text is good for transmitting info. Not so much for giving explanations that soothe the ego. Face to face is needed when feelings are involved.

I suppose you won't.
That's OK we all have our ways.
Really? You mean you don't have a twitter feed for your team? How primitive. If you're going to flood your teammates with unnecessary information, at least let them choose if, when and how they read it.
