According to Carr’s hypothesis, texting and using Twitter for extreme lengths of time can change your thought process, making you more superficial because they encourage rapid and relatively shallow thinking. The results seem to confirm this, according to lead researcher and psychology professor Paul Trapnell.

“The values and traits most closely associated with texting frequency are surprisingly consistent with Carr’s conjecture that new information and social media technologies may be displacing and discouraging reflective thought,” Trapnell said in a news release, according to CBC News.
