Are teens abandoning Twitter?

Mashable just tweeted:

15 Year Old Says Teens Are Abandoning Twitter: Where’s the Proof? –

The article refers to a report by Matthew Robson, a 15-year, 7 months old intern at Morgan Stanley UK about teens abandoning Twitter. Good link bait. This reminded me of another post by Peter Corbett earlier this year entitled 2009 Twitter Demographics and Statistics Report.

Quantcast estimates June 2009

Quantcast Stats stats for Twitter are estimates and we know that people don’t always supply truthful data to social media sites. That out of the way, it would seem that the percentage of teens has actually increased from 1% to 5% since February.

My unscientific survey of my two children is that the 18-yo does not have a Twitter account and the same goes for her friends. My 21-yo and his friends do.
