Is social media losing it’s edge? It seems at times the population can get over saturated with apps and trends but certain technologies are embedded into our society for the long haul. Sports fans have embraced Twitter and it’s not uncommon for 1000′s of tweets per quarter per game. CNN covers political tweets on a daily basis. Here’s an interesting find by the Edison Research group. (they’re the ones who track the presidential statistics during elections and campaigns) Twitter users are more likely to be Democrats.
In fact the research concluded recently that 40% of Twitter users are Democrats, compared to 30% of the U.S. population overall. The percentage of Republications and Independents on Twitter mirrors the U.S. average almost precisely.
