Emotion Over A Text Message.
It's hard to transfer what you're trying to say.
You have to account for tone of voice, sarcasm level, pronunciation, and so much more.
Sometimes if you're smart, you can creatively find a way to portray what you're trying to say.
YOU CAN DO ALL CAPS IF YOU'RE TRYING TO YELL AND EXCLAMATION MARKS TO SHOW THAT IT'S IMPORTANT!!
youuu cannn alllllllso add some eeextra letteeers to show that yoooou're dragging your wordssss.
you. can. add. periods. to. the. end. of. each. word. to. make. the. person. read. it. and. sound. funny.
0or lyke yew cain spell thangs kynda rrong sew thut ett is prununced diff'r'ntly.
((just make sure that the person knows that that's what you're doing. otherwise they're gunna think you're really stupid and can't spell. ))

However you do it, there's most likely a way.
There's also subext *cough cough*
and words in astrics.
But, even with all these ways,
it's still better to just talk in person whenever possible.
There's also over the phone, but then you're
still missing facial expressions (which you can do over text.. well some)
and body language.
