According to a journalism doctoral student’s research of 581 Twitter users of various ages, those who are active Twitter users are more likely to experience Twitter-related conflict. Well, duh, that’s seems obvious—but the Twitter-related conflict can lead to divorce, breakups, and cheating. Basically, this means that too much tweeting can cause fights that aren’t necessarily relationship-related but arise from one partner being distracted from the relationship and then lead to infidelity or breakups.
Interestingly, Facebook use also had a negative impact on relationships, but especially in newer relationships of three years or less. Twitter use, on the other hand, had a negative impact on relationships regardless of length. No relationship is safe from Twitter!
Is your guy a Twitter addict? Are you? Do you ever fight over it?
