Twitter can make you immoral, claim scientists

Social networks such as Twitter may blunt people's sense of morality, claim brain scientists.

New evidence shows the digital torrent of information from networking sites could have long-term damaging effects on the emotional development of young people's brains.

A study suggests 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 Twitters 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...

It's like anything else. Who are you doing it for? Are you helping Christ to win souls.
Following Ashton Kutcher on Twitter reminds me of Lot's wife who turned to look back. "Star" obessed people are turning back to look ,and stare at Sodam.
I have seen someone so obessed with the computer and networking that she let Satan enter in. It was CREEPY. Nuff said. Some of this computer stuff is demonic, but nobody talks about it.
