What is the difference between ' O albină nu e o pasăre.' and 'O albină nu este o pasăre.'?

the difference is that 'e' is the short/informal version of 'este'

Thanks! How acceptable is it to use 'e' in written texts? How informal is informal basically.

you would usually find 'este' in texts, sometimes 'e' in dialogues
