To recap: Twitter didn’t really start with younger people, says Williams. It started with more the technical and professional community. Twitter is not a “social network”; it’s an “information network” — where people go to find customized news and information. While they’re seeing a growth of young people  join Twitter, it didn’t start with the younger generations.
