Twitter: Getting Younger & Stronger

October 22, 2009 Leave a comment

According to research from Pew Internet Twitter is not only growing fast, as we already knew, but it it attracts a younger audience than the other social networks.

“Some 19% of internet users now say they use Twitter or another service to share updates about themselves, or to see updates about others. This represents a significant increase over previous surveys in December 2008 and April 2009, when 11% of internet users said they use a status-update service.”

“Internet users age 18-44 report rapid uptake of Twitter over the last nine months, whereas internet users ages 45 and older report slower adoption rates. For example, 37% of internet users age 18-24 use Twitter or another service, up from 19% in December 2008.

The median age of a Twitter user is 31, which has remained stable over the past year. The median age for MySpace is now 26, down from 27 in May 2008, and the median age for LinkedIn is now 39, down from 40. Facebook, however, is graying a bit: the median age for this social network site is now 33, up from 26 in May 2008.”

Over the weekend I decided to launch a social media experiment that would create worldwide recognition, awareness and a fine display of hometown pride for Boston. So with that I decided to tweet the following at 10:18 am Est Monday October 19 via @BostonTweet

Can we do it? Make #BostonIsBetter a No. 1 trending topic & tell the world why #BostonIsBetter than other US cities.

To my huge surprise it worked! Bostonians are raving about their city, NY is getting upset at us and #BostonIsBetter has become the 5th most popular topic on Twitter in just 6 hours! It cracked the top 10 in under 2 hours.

Ahhh, the power of Twitter.
