Latinos Love La Twitter

A new and first-ever survey by Pew Research on Twitter users states that Latinos love the micro-blogging site.  Apparently 18% of Hispanics use Twitter compared to 5% of white web users and 13% of black web users. The survey demonstrated that hablando in 140 characters or less was particularly popular with women, young adults, minorities, and those who live in cities. ( … Just saying I love to twitter and I am a”young” Latina living in a major American city..)

The UK’s Guardian published the findings and highlighted some interesting facts on Twitter users:

• Of the online population, 10% of women and 7% of men use Twitter.

• 14% of 18-29 year olds use Twitter compared to 7% of those aged 30-49.

• 18% of Hispanics use Twitter compared to 5% of white people and 13% of black web users.

• 11% of those in urban areas use Twitter compared to 5% in rural areas.
