What Twitter Is ... and Isn't ...

"Twitter not popular with Generation Y & Millennials," JustinSMV writes in this post at socialmediatoday, citing a Nielsen Netview report, Twitter users are most popular among working adults, 35-49 years-of-age.

There's been a lot of buzz out there - in both the virtual and the actual worlds - about social media ... who uses them and who doesn't ... who enjoys them ... who puts them to work ... who fears them ... and on and on. I've been finding out more and more about social media as part of my work at Midland College.

What do you think? I'm kind of a newbie at it ... but I find myself in good company. Really, it's not all that much of a stretch from blogging to twittering. Local bloggers who can also be found on Twitter include Janie at Sounding Forth, Eric at Fire Ant Gazette and Rob at Two Dolphins ... many of whom fit into (or nearly into) the demo noted by JustinSMV.
