67% Of Americans Use Social Media (With One In Six Active On Twitter)

alltwitter-social-media-signpostTwo thirds of Americans have a profile on one or more social networks, reveals a new study, with about one in six (16 percent) using Twitter.

Edison Research surveyed more than two thousand U.S. citizens re using digital platforms and found that 67 percent of respondents use social media.
