Relationships, social networking
So why is it that Twitter can wreak havoc with your love life? 'Even if you are sat in silence with your partner, reaching for your phone breaks any connection, makes the other feel that they are boring you, ' says sex and relationship therapist Sarah Berry.
And then there's all that flirting: 'Online flirting with others may seem innocent but it can still hurt. It can lead to your partner not trusting you.
In previous research, Clayton found Facebook had a similar effect.
But whereas Facebook-related conflict was greater among couples in newer relationships (of 36 months or less), in this latest Twitter research, Clayton found the same worrying outcomes occurred regardless of how long people had been together.
'I found it interesting that active Twitter users experienced Twitter-related conflict and negative relationship outcomes regardless of length of romantic relationship, ' Clayton said.
Tweeting is the source of many relationship woes
'Couples who reported being in relatively new relationships experienced the same amount of conflict as those in longer relationships.'
'Although a number of variables can contribute to relationship infidelity and separation, social networking site usage, such as Twitter and Facebook use, can be damaging to relationships, ' Clayton said.
'Therefore, users should cut back to moderate, healthy levels of Twitter use if they are experiencing Twitter or Facebook-related conflict.'
'Some couples share joint social networking site accounts to reduce relationship conflict, and there are some social networking site apps, such as the 2Life app, that facilitates interpersonal communication between partners.'
The 2Life app is a private, secure network that lets you chat, share, collaborate and coordinate with your partner. It features a 'date night' feature powered by Yelp's local listings so that couples can browse reviews before deciding where they want to have dinner. They can also chat in the built-in messaging space and there's a private shared journal.
In his previous study, Clayton, surveyed Facebook users aged between 18 and 82, asking them how much they used the social network and how often they had bust-ups with their partners - past or present - that had been ignited by the site.
