It's Easier to Make Jokes in Person Than on Zoom

After meeting in person with my teammates for work, I realized it’s far easier to joke around and riff in person rather than on Zoom. For this group of people, my primary means of communication was Zoom for the past 6 months and the effects were noticeable.

It has something to do with removing latency and improved feedback with body language. Everyone can hear even if there are overlapping voices. Jokes are more responsive.
