May 13, 2009 - PRLog -- Twitter is hot, but what do we know about the people who tweet?

Researchers at the University of Washington are asking Twitter users to participate in the first  in a series of demographic surveys designed to provide a unique store of up-to-date information on the growth and trends in the use of Twitter and other micro-blogging services. The series value lies in its independent, objective view of demographics, culture, attitudes, and usage patterns of those who use services like Twitter.

The first UW Twitter survey is accessible at http://tr.im/UWSurvey

Participant details are anonymous, however, participants may enter a drawing for Amazon gift certificates after completing the survey.

The current survey runs through 22 May 2009. A second survey will be conducted in six months and, like the original, it will be accessible for a month.
