I've never done it to anyone or had it done to me, but I do know people who've had it happen to them. Personally I don't see the big deal. If the person is dumping you then why care how they do it? Why waste your time being pissed over it, I mean you were going to be dumped anyway so why would you even want to see the person. Text or in person does it really matter when either way it's over?

I haven't had this happen to me either and I haven't done it to anyone. I assume its just the principal. Texting is a more casual way of communication for lack of better words. I personally do think some things should be discussed in person just out of respect. I assume some people don't feel like they meant much if the person couldn't just communicate with them face to face.
At the same time I'm sure there are some people who make this a bigger deal than it really is because they are hurt, emotional, and irrational in the moment of reading such horrible news.
Another possibility is that there may not really be closure when you just get a text saying its over. They might not reply again or go into detail. Even if they do the conversation just isn't the same.1
