Twitter is a constant stream of new information, but only 8% of U.S. adults are using it to consume news, with 85% of those consumers using their mobile phones compared to only 40% of the total population.
This finding is from a recent study from Pew Research, in a survey of 5,000 adults. Of those surveyed, 736 are Twitter users who tend to be younger and more educated than that of the average population. In fact, Twitter users are younger, more educated, and more mobile even when compared to Facebook news consumers. The chart below shows that Twitter users are at least 20% more likely to use their mobile devices than Facebook users when accessing news.

Twitter #Music may be on the way out, according to reports. The social network introduced the music discovery app back in April, as a way for Twitter users to discover new music based on what is trending on Twitter. The app looks at the most popular tracks and artists based on how many tweets they are getting.
Unfortunately, the app hasn’t been taking off as much as Twitter had hoped. According to AppData, the app is currently No. 184 on the Top Free Apps Music Genre for iOS apps, not exactly leading the list.
AllThingsDigital has reported that Twitter is planning on shuttering the app. Check it out: “It is unclear what Twitter’s time frame is for ultimately ending support for Twitter #Music, as the company is currently in the midst of revamping its music department. But sources tellAllThingsD that the app’s fate is nearly sealed.”
