Twitter usage correlated with relationship problems

According to a recent study, couples who frequently use twitter are more likely to engage in infidelity and break up with or divorce their partners, the University Herald reported on July 3.

Research conducted by Russell Clayton, a University of Missouri School of Journalism doctoral student, showed that Twitter-related conflict among couples is a problem, regardless of how long they have been together. Conflict related to Facebook, however, reduces significantly after 36 months of a couple being together. Twitter users were found to be more likely to cheat on or argue with their partner.

The study focused on 581 Twitter users of varying ages. Clayton asked how much time a particular user spent tweeting, browsing his or her feed, sending private messages to people, and replying to others on the social media site. He then compared this data to the health of that person’s relationship.
