Who’s Smarter? A Twitterer or a Pothead?

If you said “pothead”, congratulations! You’re right!

A recent study carried out at the Institute of Psychiatry found that excessive use of technology reduces workers’ intelligence (BBC). Specifically, those distracted by incoming e-mail and phone calls saw a 10-point fall in their IQ – more than twice that found in studies of the impact of smoking marijuana. Twitter really is making a twit out of you!

Those who are constantly breaking away from tasks to react to email or text messages suffer similar effects on the mind as losing a night’s sleep. So just imagine what a constant barrage of tweets from twits would do to you!
