Woo hoo! My demographic likes Twitter least!

Roger Carr

Hi Beth,

Thanks for posting these Twitter statistics. I am not surprised by the younger generations having a higher usage of Twitter. I was surprised by two things: 1) Regardless of the age group there appears to be an even spread regarding the level of Twitter usage, and 2) the age group 55-64 have a higher usage than the age groups before and after it.

Cynthia Samuels

Very interesting. I'd remind Roger Carr that that 55-64 posse is full of front-end baby boomers who are getting more time to fool around on the web and are community-seeking anyway. Makes sense, no?


Thanks for sharing this data - it is very interesting! I was surprised by the gender breakdown. I didn't realize that male usage was so much greater than female.

@neha I was going to make an observation about that - what does that say?


Beth - I'm unsure, however the recent study conducted by BlogHer clearly shows how important blogging is to women - perhaps women prefer this as a more in depth communication of an idea and micro-blogging is slower to pick up? What were your ideas?
