Only 9% of Americans have Twitter account, but 52% of Twitter Users Concerned about Safety of Personal Information


Twitter is the latest social networking craze on the Internet, but a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 52% of Twitter users are concerned about the safety of their personal information on the site. Twenty-six percent (26%) are very concerned.

Forty-five percent (45%) of Twitter users are not concerned about the safety of personal information, including 10% who are not at all worried.

Of course, only nine percent (9%) of Americans say they actually have a Twitter account. Seventy-one percent (71%) have read, seen or heard about, but an overwhelming majority (88%) of adults do not have an account.

Adults ages 18 to 39 are more likely to be Twitter users than those who are older. Those who earn $75,000 or more per year are more likely to have a Twitter account than those who earn less.
