Interesting statistic from Alison DeNisco Rayome:
Almost all political tweets come from just 10% of Twitter users
I believe that. Half of them probably came from President Trump.
Twitter users who disapprove of President Donald Trump are especially prominent on the platform
There’s the other half.
Demographic information also sheds light on who is tweeting about politics. While adults age 65 and older produced just 10% of all tweets studied, they contributed 33% of the tweets about national politics, according to Pew. People aged 50 and older produced 29% of all tweets, but 73% of tweets mentioning politics. In comparison, 18- to 29-year-olds produced 20% of all tweets, and just 4% of political tweets
What would happen if news outlets stopped reporting Trump’s tweets?
