Agreed, and this is one of the larger problems people in social
censorship bubbles, where basically if you don't have the tech you
can't talk to the person. One of the things that encryption
technologies like Off the Record Messaging try to bridge.

Nobody wants to be forced to use specific technology from a specific
individual or entity. It's bad enough everyone uses Facebook.

Decentralization is the only way to avoid this becoming a weak link.
