TwitterAs the debate over Twitter’s financial value continues in preparation for its IPO Thursday, Wall Street Journal Senior Producer Jason Bellini looks at the overall financial value that news brings to Twitter. Bellini focuses on the eight percent of American users who get their news from Twitter—equaling profits for advertisers—as of the one half of Twitter users that use the medium for news, 48% of them make $75,000 or more.

The video also focuses on the age and education of the average Twitter user, which leans younger and more educated than main social competitor Facebook.
