From Daily Beast:

If you believe the results of a new OkCupid survey, it turns out that attention doesn’t just shape our ability to complete homework or work efficiency—it actually hinders romance, too.

Just as with their 140-character musings, Twitter users seem to end up in relationships that are bite-size. “Twitter users have shorter relationships,” says Christian Rudder, the site’s cofounder and editorial director. “How much shorter? Maybe not a lot… but the difference is measurable and consistent.”
