The nice thing about email, is that it's mostly open. Lots of email clients, lots of servers, and they all interoperate. No one controls it all, and you don't have to have an account on to get email. Communicating with facebook or twitter means you have to deal with those companies.

A big problem I see with "the death of email" articles, is that they never spell out what's actually wrong with email and it's just assumed the audience agrees that it's old and broken. It works just fine.
