A recent research study has been looking into daily Twitter users and their relationships. More than 800,000 users of the micro-blog were found to have shorter relationships than those who do not tweet. Those asked in the study complied by OkTrends were aged between 18 to 50.
For those of you who are interested in the numbers, then those who do not use Twitter usually have a relationship that lasts eleven and a half months, whereas those who do use it lasts just ten and a half months. So we can see that there is a difference of one month, but why is this?
The Daily Reveille says that the professor in charge of the study believes that the reason why those relationships of twitter users do not last as long is due to the fact of personality types. Loretta Pecchioni believes that those who use Twitter have more “extreme personalities” than those who do not use it. Do not think that this is a bad thing it’s just different.
Now not certain if Twitter users will like what the professor said next, she believes that they are always looking for something that excites them, and also has a shorter attention span. Is this really a bad thing, having someone who is fun and exciting is better than a bore.
