article imageTwitter news attracts the younger, more mobile and more educated

By Lesley Lanir     Nov 4, 2013 in Internet
A new comparative report from Pew Research shows that more adults use Twitter than use Facebook for checking out what's happening news-wise and Twitter news readers "stand out as younger, more mobile and more educated."
Digital Journal reported recently on research from Pew Research Center that focused on finding out the role of news on Facebook.
According to a new report by the Pew Research Center in collaboration with the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, nearly one-in-ten U.S. adults get news through Twitter. When a comparison was made between the Americans who get news on Facebook, Twitter news consumers appear to be younger, more mobile and more educated.
Other Pew Research analysis of conversations that took place on Twitter over a three year period looked into the type of information shared, sentiments expressed and ebb and flow of interest.
