Couples Who Use Twitter a Lot Are More Likely to Cheat and Break up

Posted in: , , ,

Results from a new research say if you and your spouse spend much time on twitter, then you are likely to cheat and break up.

PhD student Russell Clayton from the University of Missouri-Columbia who conducted the study found that too much tweeting leads to arguments, often about the amount spent on the social media network, as well as jealousy about who a partner is talking to.

The study also found the more active a couple is on the network, the more likely they are to be unfaithful to each other, and for the relationship to eventually break down completely.

Russell Clayton measured the time users spent on Twitter, conflicts arising from their use, and the impact it had on their relationship.

The results according to his article in the journal Cyberpsychology, Behaviour and Social Networking show that;

‘Active users of social networking who are in a romantic relationship may find that Twitter-related conflicts cause relationship problems that can become serious enough to result in infidelity or divorce. The length of the romantic relationship does not alter the findings so that even long married couples can fall out over Twitter as much as newlyweds.

Do you agree? For those that use twitter, have you noticed your partner reacting negatively?

I also wonder if other social networks do not have the same effect?
