Warning: Using Twitter can shorten your relationship

But don’t feel too lonely, tweethearts – it seems regular tweeters are also big into… ahem, loving themselves.

YOU KNOW WHAT they say – short messages, short… relationships.

One of the best/worst graphs we have come across today comes courtesy of the OKCupid dating site. It found that of its 833,987 website users, the relationships of those who were frequent tweeters tended to end earlier than the relationships of non-tweeters.

The site asks users lots of intimate questions to determine the compatibility factor between potential partners. That, ladies and gents is how we know that people who use Twitter also engage in, er, self-love more frequently than those who don’t tweet. This statistic was true “across all age and gender groups” according to the site.
