Who is the Typical Twitter User? [Infographic]

The anatomy of a Twitter user is interesting stuff: he’s male, between 18 and 29, Hispanic, and lives in an urban area. At least, that’s according to the latest Twitter infographic from FlowTown.

FlowTown uses the latest demographics information from Pew Research Center for the latest Twitter infographic: Who’s Using Twitter and How They’re Using It.

Some surprising information? One quarter of Twitter users tweet regularly throughout the day. This flies in the face of other facts, which suggest that over half of all Twitter accounts are abandoned. It looks like you either love it, or leave it.

And the type of information that Twitter users are sharing might surprise some people as well. Personal updates are the most-shared pieces of information on Twitter, followed by work updates. The least popular thing to share on Twitter? Your location.

Take a look at the infographic below for some more cool facts about Twitter users:
