Is Twitter Harming Relationships?

You have probably heard about Jennifer Aniston dropping John Mayer over his Twitter obsession. Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore had a few arguments over Ashton's constant twittering and of course the picture. There is even a new term for the twittering Hollywood crowd. Twitterati. Those two are highly publicized and talked about cases. What about others in the twittering masses that have ruined a relationship by constant connection via twitter, facebook, or other social media? Do you have any stories where social media has damaged a relationship?

I used to be on Myspace, I've never been on Facebook, and I just recently started using Twitter. I like to stay in touch with friends and stay connected, but I'm not sure about the efficay of constant contact with far away strangers. I have seen people ignore all of the wonderful people around them because they were on the phone talking, texting, twittering, or checking Facebook. When used properly I think social media is a great tool and a great way to stay connected to real live see-once-in-a-while friends and family. I also think it is a great way for a blogger to connect on a more personal level with people. What do you think about twittering and blogging? Does twittering help or hurt? Does a twittering blogger help or harm his relationship with readers?
