Do Yoof know something we don’t?

I have probably already covered this story – if so – I am sorry. Put it down to cognitive decline.

Nielsen, like Morgan Stanley, reckons that teenagers don't like Twitter.

According to Nielsen, only 16% of Twitter users were under the age of 25, yet they represent a quarter of all internet users.

Twitter has grown massively in the past six months - it is now used by about 10% of all active internet users, even though it is shunned by children, teens and young adults.

I think this must be one of the first instances of a radically new Web service being driven by the older age groups. Is this a preview of the future? Can’t kids think about anything to write in 140 characters?

Maybe, they are right and Twitter is a complete waste of time. Dick Stroud
