Twitter More Popular Among African American Users
(RedOrbit) According to a survey released on Wednesday, more American adults are using Twitter these days, and the micro-blogging service is more popular among African Americans and Latinos.
The Pew Research Center’s Internet and American Life Project said that thirteen percent of the online adults aged 18 and older use Twitter, which is up eight percent from November 2010.
Twenty-five percent of the African-Americans surveyed told Pew they use the service, while 19 percent of the Hispanics and nine percent of the whites said the same thing.
“One in 10 African-American Internet users now visit Twitter on a typical day — that is double the rate for Latinos and nearly four times the rate for whites,” Pew said.
