Study says using Twitter may increase divorce risks

A study published in the journal of Cyberpsychology, Behavior, and Social Networking claims that active Twitter users are more likely to be involved in relationship conflicts that may ultimately lead to negative outcomes, such as infidelity and divorce.

The study, which was conducted by a doctoral student at the University of Missouri School of Journalism, surveyed 581 Twitter users from different age groups on how frequently they use Twitter, and how often they experienced Twitter-related confrontations with their romantic partners. The research concluded that active Twitter users are more likely to get involved in relationship conflicts, which increases the risk of cheating and divorce.
