Ya’ll Need to Log Off Twitter

Check out this article from The Atlantic which perfectly summarizes my thoughts on Twitter’s influence over our culture.

According to just about every study that has been conducted on the question, Twitter is not representative in the slightest. The Pew Research Center, for example, has found that less than a quarter of Americans log on to Twitter with any regularity. And as TheAtlantic’s Alexis Madrigal points out, those regular users differ from the wider population: “In the United States, Twitter users are statistically younger, wealthier, and more politically liberal than the general population.”
