¿Tuiteas? 19% Of Latinos Online Use Twitter

About 1 in 5 Latinos who use the Internet also use Twitter, according to an updated study released by the Pew Internet & American Life Project. This statistic shows that Latino tend to use Twitter more than the general U.S. population, of which only 13% are on Twitter, according to the report. There were some more tid bits from the study:

  • 54% of U.S. Internet users on Twitter use their phones to access it
  • Non-white internet users continue to have higher rates of Twitter use than their white counterparts
  • On a typical day, 5% of Latino Internet users are on Twitter

Here’s a chart of the study’s results:

Contextualizing this information is also important. As we’ve reported, Latinos love smartphones and almost half Latino mobile customers use these types of phones. This enables Latinos to use location-based services at higher rates than other groups, as well as Twitter, social buying services like Groupon, and generally be ideal social media consumers.
