Who Tweets? Basic demographic breakdown of that population | Pew Research Survey Results

Buzz Excerpt from Pew Research Center . . .

Some of the groups who are notable for their relatively high levels of Twitter use include:
  • Young adults: Internet users ages 18-29 are significantly more likely to use Twitter than are older adults.
  • African-Americans and Latinos: Minority internet users are more than twice as likely to use Twitter as are white internet users.
  • Urbanites: Urban residents are roughly twice as likely to use Twitter as rural dwellers.
Women and the college-educated are also slightly more likely than average to use the service.

These findings about Twitter in the Pew Internet Project’s regular tracking survey match the tests we ran on two omnibus surveys in October. Those omnibus surveys conducted by our polling partner, Princeton Survey Research Associates International, are weekly surveys onto which organizations can insert questions. In two differently weekly surveys in October we also found that 8% of internet users said “yes” to the specific Twitter question.1
