Kids Don’t Hate Twitter Anymore! [Chart]

Remember last year’s obsession about kids hating Twitter?

The site saw growth across all demographics in 2009, but growth among people 24 and younger accelerated faster than older folks in 2009, according to comScore.

Unlike most social networks, Twitter started out being more popular with adults before it caught on with younger users. That changed last year as celebrity tweets caught on and mainstream media started talking about the service more.

At the end of 2009, more than 30% of Twitter’s visitors were under 25, this chart suggests, up from about 20% of its visitors at the end of 2008:

    I love these infographics. I'm curious about something, how do they know the ages of people signing up for Twitter? Is this taken from a survey?

    I do know a lot of younger people that are starting to use Twitter especially if they are blogging. I think the two things are tied together. The young people I know that don't have a blog are still on FaceBook. They might have a Twitter account but rarely use it.

    I'd love to see some inforgraphics on that too ;)

    Thanks Pam.

    Hi Ileane — It's based on survey data. And I'd like to see some data, too, on the percentage of users who have an active presence but not on Twitter and vice versa. I'll look around. Thanks for visiting!
