interesting stats ... need to learn chinise soon if u wana reach majority ....Twitter Traffic Explodes...And Not Being Driven by the Usual Suspects! (comScore Voices)
Reuters reporter Alexei Oreskovic recently authored an interesting blog post about the demographics of Twitter users. What he discovered was that 18-24 year olds, the traditional social media early adopters, are actually 12 percent less likely than average to visit Twitter (Index of 88). It is the 25-54 year old crowd that is actually driving this trend. More specifically, 45-54 year olds are 36 percent more likely than average to visit Twitter, making them the highest indexing age group, followed by 25-34 year olds, who are 30 percent more likely.
Older than thought, but 25-54 is a MASSIVE audience.
With so many businesses using Twitter, along with the first generations of Internet users “growing up” and comfortable with technology, this is a sign that the traditional early adopter model might need to be revisited.comScore: Mobile Internet Becoming A Daily Activity For Many
