Twitter ‘Popular for US Minorities’
(BBC) — The Pew Research Center, a Washington-based think tank, found that 13% of Latino and 18% of African-American adult internet users use Twitter. Of all US adult internet users, 8% use the micro-blogging site, Pew found. Minority groups visit the site more because they are younger and use mobile technology more often, the centre said. “Both of those groups, African-American and Latino adult internet users in the US, tend to be younger than white internet users, which helps to lead to their adoption of Twitter,” said Senior Research Specialist Aaron Smith.
