Twitter Damages Your Memory...


Micro-blogging service Twitter could have a harmful effect on your memory, says one scientist.

According to Dr Tracy Alloway from Stirling University, who will be speaking on the subject at the British Science Festival this week, Twitter "produces a stream of information every second with no opportunity to process or manipulate that information".

I agree. In fact, I'm not certain that most 'twitters' have a memory to worry about.

Process? Manipulate? You got me.

The stream of information that I read, would infer that the harm on memory is complete long before you begin to 'twitt'.
