5 Facts about Twitter Users and Behavior

By Eliece Hammond

A new study put out by Beevolve breaks down data points from Twitter into these categories:
• Demographics
• Followers & Followings
• Gender Preferences
• Categorization of Twitter Users
• Smartphone & App preferences
• Miscellaneous

We found these five facts the most fascinating:

1. Age and Usage

73.7% of Twitter users are age 15 – 25 and over 50% of Twitter users sign in daily, though a fair portion of users never tweet and have an influence score of less than 3 on a scale of 1 to 10
