Twitter could damage your health

22nd April 2009

The chairman of the London Repetitive Strain Injury Support Group has warned that over-enthusiastic Twitter users could be in danger of health problems.

Kevin Fleisch said: "I want Twitter to put something on the website warning against overuse and how to use responsibly, people need to be made aware of this."

"It is highly likely anything that involves you constantly typing will increase your chances of getting RSI. Anybody that is repetitively moving their fingers is more likely to get it."
