Only 1 in 10 teens use Twitter every day

As per a news item in the Los Angles Times, a little more than one in 10 teens say they use Twitter every day, a new report shows. According to this report, only 11% of youths aged 12 through 17 say they use Twitter daily. By contrast, the report shows 51% of teens visit some sort of social network other than Twitter each day.

The report, called the “The Secret Lives of Teenagers Online,” was assembled by Business Insider working with Nielsen, Ericsson, McAfee and Common Sense Media.

As per the report, of the teens who have a Twitter account, 72% of them say they never use it. The report, suggested that teens’ lack of interest in Twitter may be attributable to their general lack of interest in news. Twitter CEO Dick Costolo recently told that the social network has 140 million active users. Costolo said Twitter’s growth is coming from users in other countries, particularly those in the Middle East. Saudi Arabia alone saw growth of 3,000% in June, he said. “It took three years and two months to send the first 1 billion tweets,” he said. “Now 400 million tweets are sent a day. It takes 2½ days to send 1 billion tweets.”
