Twitter and the TRUE Demographics - 8% of Online Americans Use Twitter (Pew Research Center)


Recently, the Pew Internet and American Life Project (A Project of the Pew Research Center), released a report titled, "8% of Online Americans Use Twitter". More women than men use twitter and more 18-29 year olds use Twitter more than any subsequent age group, and most of live in urban environments. Here's the surprising part, most of the Twitter users are minorities (Black and Hispanic) and most of the users make less than $30,000 and between $50,000 and $74,999.

I wonder how many professors from historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) AND Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSIs) use Twitter in their classrooms.

Here's the link to the report - 8% of Online Americans Use Twitter.

Millennial Professor - Jennifer T. Edwards, Ed.D.
