I often do first drafts of poems longhand, especially when I'm writing from prompts in sessions with the Binghamton Poetry Project. I think this makes it even more likely to write short to medium length lines because of the way they look on the written page.

When I do draft poems on the computer, they are usually ones I've been working on in my head for some length of time. I always draft blog posts directly on the computer. I don't usually write long pieces, but, if I did, I would have to draft on the computer because some orthopedic problems in my right arm wouldn't allow me to write longhand for hours.
