Description Source More information
The statistic displays the results of a survey on the age profile of Twitter users and visitors in Great Britain from May 2013 to May 2017. The survey was conducted via face-to-face interviews on a monthly basis and gathered data from 1,000 adults in Great Britain of which 208 had visited or used Twitter in the three month previous to the latest sampling. Twitter is most popular among younger people. As of May 2017, 32 percent of respondents, who stated that they visited or used Twitter, were between 15 and 24 years old and more than half of Twitter users in Great Britain were 34 years of age or younger. The smallest proportion of Twitter users was in the age group of people who were 55 years or older, with 14 percent of respective respondents stating that they visited or used Twitter in the previous three months. As of August 2016, about 17 percent of adults in the United Kingdom used twitter daily. Further information on social media usage in the United Kingdom and Twitter can be found in the Dossier: Twitter in the United Kingdom.
