10% Of Americans Use Twitter During Work Hours [STATS]

10% Of Americans Use Twitter During Work Hours

New data from Statista suggests that nearly 10% of Americans access Twitter during normal work hours.

Moreover, a full 29% of Americans admit to visiting Facebook during work hours every single day. Is that why employers block access to Facebook for 19.4% of Americans and Twitter for 15.1%?

The Statista data, co-produced with Mashable, is culled from 1,021 part- or full-time employees in the U.S. during July 2013.

The caveat here is that any number of respondents could be using Twitter for work. It’s also interesting that more people surveyed used Yahoo mail than Twitter during work hours.

Be honest: do you tweet from your personal account during work hours?
