A totally pointless dating survey?


The romantic relationships of active Twitter users apparently don’t last as long as the rest of the population, according to stats published by dating website OkCupid.

Among OkCupid’s findings are two conclusions about Twitter users. The first one: People who use Twitter every day tend to have shorter relationships, and the problem gets worse as a person gets older, according to its analysis of 833,987 OkCupid users.

However, if you read the actual results of the survey, the figures are that “the average relationship for an 18-year-old who uses Twitter is about nine months, while “everybody else” usually has a relationship average of nine-and-a-half months.” Even more “shocking” is that “at age 50, the frequent tweeter has a 15 month-long relationship, while the non-frequent Twitter user stays in a relationship for an average of almost 17 months.”

Wow! If you use Twitter at 18, your relationship will last 2 weeks less & if you’re 50, you’ll get a whole 2 months extra, by not using Twitter!!

Could this be the most pointless dating survey ever released? Or do you know of one with even less useful information?!
