People who are young, minorities and live in cities are more likely to use the service.

Pew Internet: Pew has published the results of its first ever study solely on Twitter. Eight percent of online Americans (which translates to six percent of the population) said they use Twitter, and two percent do so every day.

The study also found that more women than men use the service, and people who were black or Hispanic used Twitter more often than Caucasians. People aged 18-29 were the age group most likely to tweet, and more urbanites used the service than people who lived in suburban or rural settings.
