Teens don’t tweet?

August 31, 2009

I saw this as a trending topic recently.  It’s true, I don’t follow any teenagers on Twitter, but that’s because most of the younger generation (even the <30 crowd) I see on TT and the public timeline mostly post obscene or useless information – which, furthermore, tends to be filled with grammatical errors and misspellings.

Here’s a thought.  Social media like Twitter is text only.  Yes, you can link to other things, but it’s harder to simply spy on people like you can on Facebook so easily.  It’s information-based, like the Web was originally supposed to be.  I like it that way, because that’s life in the 21st century.  But it’s possible that the medium itself is a little more conducive to business use and adult interaction.  Thoughts?
