This is the first-ever survey reading from the Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project that exclusively examines Twitter users. In previous surveys, the Project had asked internet users whether they “used Twitter or another service to share updates about yourself or to see updates about others?”
Eight percent of the American adults who use the internet are Twitter users. 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 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.
