Ive always heard handwritten thank you notes after an interview are preferred and considered more personal. Is it true?

Dear Wondering About Writing,
There was a time that handwritten interview follow-up notes were the norm but those days are long past. Today, they would be considered too folksy and informal and even unsophisticated in some cases. In todays hi-tech world, typed follow-up notes are the norm. And they should be on good-quality stationary (not computer paper). Its OK to send a brief text or e-mail message right after the interview, but you should still follow-up with a typed note sent via the U.S. Post Office.
