More surprising, is the demographics of Twitter users. Alexei Oreskovic, a Reuters reporter, found out that the younger aged people, between 18 – 24 years old, are the ones that visit Twitter less, compared to a crowd of 25 – 54 years old, which appears to be the driving force of Twitter users. Even more specific are the people between 45 – 54 years old, which according to the same source, are the ones that more likely visit and use Twitter, representing 36% of the index analyzed by comScore.com.
