Pew Report: Twitter and Status Updating, Fall 2009

Twitter and Status Updating, Fall 2009, by Susannah Fox, Kathryn Zickuhr, Aaron Smith – Oct 21, 2009

  • “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. Three groups of internet users are mainly responsible for driving the growth of this activity: social network website users, those who connect to the internet via mobile devices, and younger internet users – those under age 44.”
  • Pew study: Nearly 1 in 5 Net users is tweeting – Twitter’s growth partially due to those on the go who use mobile Internet
