"Letter" in Japanese

I'm reading a book about language in Japanese and German chat-communication. The author is Japanese. Sometimes, when she explains how the communication works, she uses the word "letter". But the use is of this word looks a little bit strange to me. It's like the word "letter" in Japanese has a wider meaning as in German. Is that really so?
