Past research has highlighted how social media platforms like Facebook and Friends Reunited can have a negative effect on relationships but now it’s the turn of Twitter to be blamed for an increase in marriage breakdown.
Russell Clayton, a doctoral student at the University of Missouri, was responsible for research based around the effects of Facebook on modern life and he has now produced a study on Twitter concluding that “Twitter-related conflict” can lead to “negative relationship outcomes, including emotional and physical cheating, breakup and divorce.”
His findings were founded on the answers given by 581 Twitter users based on questions regarding their level of activity and any arguments that occurred as a result of using Twitter.
Claytons findings revealed that excessive Twittering was linked to “Twitter-related” arguments with partners about overuse or cheating which then in some cases led to a breakdown in the relationship or divorce.
“Although a number of variables can contribute to relationship infidelity and separation, social networking site usage, such as Twitter and Facebook use, can be damaging to relationships,”
“Therefore, users should cut back to moderate, healthy levels of Twitter use if they are experiencing Twitter or Facebook – related conflict.”
