Twitter Can Make You Immoral, Scientists Say

Social networks on the Internet such as Twitter can blunt one’s morality, scientists from the Brain and Creativity Institute at the University of Southern California say.

According to the Daily Mail in London’s report on the new study, “Rapid-fire news updates and instant social interaction are too fast for the ‘moral compass’ of the brain to process. The danger is that heavy Twitter and Facebook users could become ‘indifferent to human suffering’ because they never get time to reflect and fully experience emotions about other people’s feelings.”

Adds the news story, “The impact could be most damaging for youngsters whose brains are still developing.”

The study also posits that feelings like admiration and compassion as well as the sense of self are deeply wired into the human brain and psyche or soul. In other words, we are made in the image of a Personal Benevolent Creator.
