Teens don’t use Twitter?

I have covered this topic before, but see Mashable’s Story on Twitter and Teens.

Again, I’m attributing this lack of tweeting to teen’s love of Facebook. FB was their first introduction into social media and, unlike other areas of their lives, they are remaining faithful to their first love. Some, if not most, even have an outright hatred of Twitter.

Does this mean, Twitter’s success will stumble and fall as these teens enter the business world? As the current generations of Twitter users retire and fade, what will happen to Twitter?

    Eh? I think Twitter will stick around. Facebook tends to fill more of a micro-blogging role, based on relationships or even flirts. Twitter specializes in events. I wouldn’t use Facebook to get my news.

    I’m with you, I don’t see Twitter going anywhere anytime soon. It will be interesting to see at what age, if ever, the younger generations will adopt Twitter.
