Twitter Users Older and Chronic Media Junkies, Says Study

The Pew Internet and American Life Project spent money and time to tell us stuff we already know.

From ARS Technica:

Pew says that the average Twitter user is “overwhelmingly young,” though the average age of a Twitter user is slightly higher than most other social networking services. Twitter’s median age is 31, while Facebook’s is 26 and MySpace’s is 27. Because of their youth, however, Twitter users are more likely to come from lower-income households (older Internet users tend to make more than younger users), and they’re more likely to live in urban areas than the general Internet population.

In other words…tweeters are dorks. Broke, barely 30 and strung out on #breakingnews #dorks. Plz RT.
