Can 140 characters ruin your relationship? One new study thinks so and says that tweeting may lead to infidelity and divorce.
The University of Missouri just released this study and it found, the more active you are on Twitter, the more Twitter-related conflict you may have with your partner in your relationship -- which, according to the study, can lead to negative relationship outcomes like cheating and separation.
And that trend was the same, regardless of length of your relationship too. couples who were in long-term relationships were just as vulnerable to this effect as those in new relationships.
The researchers say many factors are, of course to blame for damaging relationships
But since their research does show that being very active on Twitter can lead to conflict in some relationships, they recommend cutting back to a healthy, more moderate level of use.
