About 8% of American adults who use the Internet are Twitter users, with 2% using it on a typical day.

Twitter is particularly popular with young adults, minorities and those who live in cities.

Those were the findings of a tracking survey from the Pew Research Center‘s Internet and American Life Project.

With tens of millions of users, Twitter has popped up as a growing presence on Pew’s radar, so Pew decided to try to measure Twitter usage. As part of its regular Internet tracking survey, it asked a specific question about Twitter use for the first time.
