Twitter use demographics

BankwalkerBankwalker Posts: 3,279 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

@Pigeons @Mikegriff

80% of all twitter accounts are located outside of the USA

Roughtly 72 million twitter accounts are active in the United States. Not all of those are individual accounts, obviously.

Roughy one quarter(25%} of white and black identified American adults use twitter. That means 75% do not use twitter Duh

Slightly more than half of all twitter users are female.

Twitter use by age group

Usage among U.S. adults drops as age increases. Pew research found that 27% of those aged 30-49, 15% of those aged 50-64, and 8% of those aged 65 and above use Twitter (down from 10% in 2016).

Therefore - TWITTER IS A TERRIBLE CHOICE TO USE WHEN TRYING TO SAMPLE THE BROAD DEMOGRAPHIC OF ADULT COLLEGE FOOTBALL FANS.

Game Over.

    Since we're being petty, here's an excerpt from how DHS calculates undetected border crossings. Feel free to read the whole thing online and then get back to me with an actual critique of the methodology instead of, "I don't understand it, so it can't be real."

    Also by your numbers 50% of Twitter users are over 30.

    over age 30 is not where the money starts in CFB

  • BankwalkerBankwalker Posts: 3,279 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    23.6% of made up statistics are created by conservatives

    100% of this thread is useless, but it is slightly entertaining.

    Your argument doesn't make a bunch of sense to me @Bankwalker. You're basically saying that because Twitter users are only a subset of certain groups of humans, they can't be used for sampling data. I hope that when anyone tells you about any type of poll, you remain logically consistent an reject it on the basis that not every human was asked to participate. The idea of Family Feud must have you seething.

    I'm obviously just poking fun at your argument. I think looking at demographic breakdown of Twitter users by age would support your claim better.

  • FirePlugDawgFirePlugDawg Posts: 3,744 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    And only a 64.2% chance of that.

    Bank has his shortcomings but he's basically a good citizen of this online community and occasionally makes a solid contribution.

    Mike has his shortcomings but I appreciate his position and his reporting, and I think he deserves respect.

    The political debates on here range from mildly annoying to outright infuriating. Lately I find myself biting my tongue several times each day. I'm sure I'm not alone.

    I wish we could modify the forum rules and just make politics off limits altogether.

    I'm staying outta the political conversation but here's a pretty cool Twitter demography.

    Mea culpa time:

    I probably got this started off yesterday when OP commented about how Twitter polls were lazy journalism or what have you. He had a point, but me knowing he's a conservative and me not being the biggest fan of Drumpf I decided to poke the bear a little and bring up how the president uses twitter so that must mean Twitter must be a little important. I made no statement at the time my opinion on our current president, just pointing out that he uses it.

    I could've found a better way. I poured lighter fluid on a lit match and the rest is history and this thread. I apologize for being snarky and taking it to politics. I did it again this afternoon, and OP complained about me being off-topic when he previously had an off-topic comment deleted. in full transparency I deleted all my off-topic comments w/r/t aforementioned subjects since his was as well. Again, sorry about that one...could've handled it better. I like pushing buttons in real life and on the board. Ask @WCDawg as he's been a target of mine for a while.

    I should pick my spots going forward and will do what I can not to bring up politics on this board.

    For a few downvotes down, you can rent that space interest free!

  • RPMdawgRPMdawg Posts: 2,141 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    @Kasey and everyone on the forum. I got no problem with anything posted here on the forum. It was just a comment for comment sake. Nothing negative behind it at all. You will never hear a complaint from me about the board. It's not place to do so. If I slip, feel free to call my hand on it. Have fun, Go Dawgs

    In fact, most of my posts are bs . Take them that way and run with it. I can take alot of ribbing. Believe me I'm used to it
