MSA and Dialect Arabic

Ive read most articles and watched youtube videos that say people do not speak MSA daily but instead use their dialect which does make sense, but when arab speakers text/communicate online do they not use MSA? they must know what the words mean and how to say them? Also for muslims who read the Qur’an, must they also not be able understand what the words mean and be able to say them?

Just a little confused by the many people who say do not learn MSA first but the dialect you wish first, would it not benefit more being able to read/write MSA for online communication?
