Are you a Twitter-addict? According to a December 2008 Pew Internet & American Life Project report, 11% of online American adults have used Twitter (or similar service) to share updates about themselves or to see the updates of others.

According to the report, those using these services are fairly young – nearly one in five online adults aged 18 to 24 have used Twitter, along with 20% of those aged 25 to 34, the use steadily drops off after age 35. This group is also highly mobile and uses Twitter along with a number of other social mediums – blogging and other social networking sites.

Odds are this is the same group responsible for the Twitter Chatter during the Super Bowl, take a look at this NY Times interactive map that shows Twitter users across the nation sending a steady stream of tweets during the Super Bowl. The map shows location and frequency of commonly used words in Super Bowl related messages. Go Steelers!
