People always claim they need privacy and as one of the most private places in the house, it's surprising how many people are actually Tweeting in the washroom.

In the Tweeting on the John infographic, the chart reveals that 33% of 18 to 24-year-olds use social media while doing their business while only 15% of 35 to 44-year-olds do. Though the percentage seems small, the abundance of social media users makes this an extremely large pool. One of the biggest reasons social media is so accessible, even from the porcelain seat, is that it can be transported and used on mobile devices, which unfortunately people also bring to the washroom. According the the infographic, one in six phones have fecal matter on them and have 18 times more bacteria than the flush handle.
