    Don't tweet and drive: study reveals Twitter users' habits

    Advertisement




    Online market research firm Crowd Science put together a report on the habits of people who use Twitter versus those who mostly use other social media and, well, the most unsettling fact is the amount of users who tweet from their cars.

    It turns out that one in every ten users in the last 30 days admitted they've tweeted while they were behind the wheel. And 29 percent of the interviewees said they've used Twitter from a car at some point in the past.

    Crowd Science also found that almost 60 percent of people have tweeted during work hours, 17 percent from a restroom and eight percent from a movie theater or live performance. I know, they sound like strange or inappropriate places to update your Twitter account, but then again, what constitutes a good place to tweet?

    I won't tweet and drive, but I will tweet while at a stop light if it has just turned red. I make sure to pay attention though so I don't hold up traffic when the light turns green. A local news station just recently reported on our Transportation department Tweeting about road closures, wrecks, etc, and asked what people thought about it. Whether it was helpful or distracting. I don't think they ever came to a conclusion except saying make sure you check your tweets before you get in the car.

    I don't tweet or text while driving and since my lovely Storm absolutely LOVES to freeze while I type messages, I don't have to resist the urge to tell all right at that moment. Guess I should throw down some money to pay for the premiere services of Vlingo so I can speak my messages and email.

    I'm guilty of this. I constantly run into people in the halls. They just laugh. I think some run into me intentionally.
