New York Times Reports That Twitter Is Not Popular With Teenagers

Twitter Users: How Old Are You?

And here I thought by tweeting, I was keeping up with the kids! Not so, says The New York Times, which reports that despite Twitter's massive prominence, it has not found popularity with teens (what, are they all just sexting or something? Just kidding).

In fact, only 11 percent of its users are 12 to 17 years old — interesting since teen adoption helped blast MySpace into popularity years ago. So who is using Twitter? Us oldies, apparently! I kid, but I do want to know how old the average tweeter is, since so many GeekSugar readers are also Twitter users.
