Yahoo! News - More Americans updating status online: Pew by AFP: Yahoo! Tech

I suppose it all depends on what the Pew researchers consider “another service,” but it’s still an impressive percentage

Eleven percent of Internet-connected US adults updated their status online using Twitter or another social network in December, nearly twice as many as in May, a survey released on Thursday said.

The survey by the Washington-based Pew Internet and American Life Project also found that the median age of a user of micro-blogging service Twitter is 31 years old as opposed to 27 for MySpace, 26 for Facebook and 40 for LinkedIn.

Pew said that 11 percent of the 2,253 Web-connected adults surveyed in December said they use Twitter or another service to share updates about themselves, up from nine percent in November and six percent in May.
