Two articles I read recently* talked about how the largest user base of Twitterers (or Tweeters, I always get messed up trying to conjugate Twitter) are in the 25 and older age range. They also talk about how in fact teenagers are barely using the service.
The reasons seem to be that the young folks have already decided on a social network to connect with their friends, and its called Facebook. So they have trouble seeing the need for yet another way to talk to their network (plus they text like crazy, even sometimes to a dangerous degree).
You also have older people (when did I become “older people”…) using Twitter for business purposes, which doesn’t exactly appeal to the teenagers.
But I’m interested in what YOU think about this trend of Twitter being fueled by older generations rather than the way we typically see social networks grow from the young-ens.
