U.S. adult Twitters users are younger and skew liberal, educated, and women, according to a report by Pew Research.
The report outlines that Twitter users are more likely to identify as Democrat than Republican, at 36 percent versus 30 percent. Twitter users have somewhat different values compared to the general population.
The analysis found also that a large majority of tweets come from a small minority of tweeters.
What do you think about these demographics of Twitter users? Should institutions and corporations use Twitter as a news source?
