Twitter: "Never Trust Anybody Over 30"

EXCLUSIVE TO THE HOLLYWOOD METRO
JCLANGELLE, STAFF WRITER--

FOLLOWING FOUND AT FORBES (5/24/14) ARTICLE BY VICTOR LIPMAN:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Twitter age trends.  Here they are (again, Sysomos data).
Twitter age demographics - Each age group is shown as its percentage of overall Twitter users: Ages 15-19 (31%), 20-24 (35%), 25-29 (15%), 30-34 (7%), 35-39 (4%), 40-44 (3%), 45-49 (2%), 50-54 (2%) and 55-60 (1%).

THAT EXPLAINS THE FOLLOWING FOLLOWERS STATS, ALSO FROM FORBES--

 Twitter’s 10 most popular accounts - Katy Perry (over 50 million followers) , Justin Bieber, Barack Obama, Lady Gaga, YouTube, Taylor Swift, Britney Spears, Rihanna, Instagram, Justin Timberlake.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
IT'S CURIOUS THAT TOP RATED ENTERTAINMENT ENTITIES SUCH AS HOLLYWOOD REPORTER AND VARIETY SPEND SO MUCH TIME AND EFFORT IN KEEPING THEIR TWITTER ACCOUNTS ACTIVE WHEN SO LITTLE OF THE STORIES ARE TARGETING THE DEMOGRAPHICS ABOVE.

AN EXAMPLE OF A BREAKING @THR STORY:


The Hollywood Reporter - Michael Bay in Talks to Direct Benghazi Movie '13 Hours' (Exclusive)

...MICHAEL BAY IS 49 YEARS OLD AND FITS INTO THE 2 PERCENT CATEGORY ABOVE.

HIS TWITTER PAGE, https://twitter.com/michaelbay, SHOWS ABOUT 30,000 FOLLOWERS. THE RATIO OF HIS TO KATY PERRY'S IS:

30,000/59,000,000=0.00051

 KATY PERRY


KATY'S BIRTHDAY WAS OCTOBER 25TH AND SHE WAS BORN IN 1984, SHE'S NOW OVER 30. KATY HAS JUST DROPPED INTO THE 7 PERCENT BRACKET.

LADY GAGA IS JUST 2 YEARS AWAY FROM GOING OVER THE 30 YEAR BRACKET AND THE REST OF THEM ARE CLOSE ON THEIR HEELS. BRITNEY IS 32, TIMBERLAKE IS 33,

THE PRESIDENT OUGHT TO BE RELIEVED THAT, AT THE AGE OF 54, HE IS PLAYINF SECOND TWITTERFIDDLE TO JUST TWO TEENIE BOPPERS, THE FIRST OF WHOM IS ALREADY OVER THE AGE OF 30.

CURIOUSLY, THERE WAS ANOTHER PERSON NAMED "TAYLOR" WHO WAS FAR MORE POPULAR THAN THE CURRENT ONE WHO COINED AN OFTEN REPEATED EXPRESSION:




TAYLOR (CHARLTON HESTON) TO LUCIUS IN THE ORIGINAL "PLANET OF THE APES" (1968):
"REMEMBER,  NEVER TRUST ANYBODY OVER 30".
