Is Twitter bad for your marriage?
Is Twitter bad for your marriage?

Russell Clayton, a University of Missouri Journalism School doctoral student, found that active Twitter users are far more likely to experience Twitter–related conflict with their romantic partners.

In turn, Clayton’s study, which surveyed 581 Twitter users, found that Twitter-related conflict often leads to emotional and physical cheating, breakup and divorce. “I found it interesting that active Twitter users experienced Twitter-related conflict and negative relationship outcomes regardless of length of romantic relationship,” Clayton said. “Couples who reported being in relatively new relationships experienced the same amount of conflict as those in longer relationships.”
