Some books are so familiar that reading them is like returning home again. — Jo March, Little Women (via speaklivewrite)

Did you know: Technology users are generally library users. A common narrative is that Americans are turning away from libraries because of newer technology, but the data shows that most highly-engaged library users are also big technology users. In fact, members of the high engagement groups are more likely to use the internet than lower engagement groups.

The first ever Pew Internet tweet.
Tomorrow is the 8th anniversary of the first tweet, tweeted by Twitter founder Jack Dorsey on March 21, 2006 (https://blog.twitter.com/2014/on-twitters-8th-birthday-find-your-first-tweet).
Around the time Twitter was launched, only 16% of online adults used social media (http://pewrsr.ch/1iPluZe). A little over 4 years later, we asked our first stand-alone question on Twitter usage, and found that 8% of online adults used Twitter (http://pewrsr.ch/1m8sqoW). As of September 2013, 18% of online adults use Twitter, and 73% of online adults use a social network of some kind. (http://pewrsr.ch/1iPfCiG).
Take a look at your first tweet using http://first-tweets.com/. It’s interesting to think about how Twitter has transformed into breaking news, professional social networks, communities, brands, etc. And now Pew Internet is even using Twitter to study Twitter: http://pewrsr.ch/1oWq6Am (#SoMeta)
