Hispanics are Twitter Crazed

A study released by the Pew Research Center shows that Hispanic’s are Twitter crazed.  18 percent of all Hispanics use Twitter versus 5 percent of the general population and 13 percent of the African-American demographic. 

These minority users are more than twice as likely to use Twitter as are white internet users.

Overall, eight percent of the American adults who use the internet are Twitter users. It is an online activity that is particularly popular with young adults, minorities, and those who live in cities. This is the first-ever survey reading from the Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project that exclusively examines Twitter users.
