I agree with Jason Young who commented on Mark's post, of the NETC08 attendees, I am not sure that Twitter has a predominance. However, there was a greater enthusiasm this year about Twitter than at last year's conference.
Several college students from Auburn University and University of Georgia are using Twitter because Robert French (Auburn University) and Karen Russell (University of Georgia) use Twitter in their public relations classes. Since January, I have observed a significant increase of Twitters from Auburn, AL. The newest Twitter adopters seem to be both fogeys and of college age. I have personally had more success in convincing the working crowd to use Twitter than I have had convincing high school and college students to use Twitter which makes me believe that Mark's observation is similar to my observation.
I would love to hear what these students think. Have these public relations students encouraged others to use Twitter? What are their opinions about the use of Twitter? Is Twitter the social network for the older crowd, like Facebook is the social network for the college age? If so, why?
