A snapshot of personality and Twitter.
Two studies examined the relationship between Twitter use and personality. Narcissism, the Big Five, and self-esteem weren’t related to creating a Twitter account. A second study, obtained through Twitter, examined correlations with patterns of use. Narcissism moderately correlated with accounts followed and contentiousness with posting. All other correlations were nonsignificant.
