Predicting Twitter’s Success in 2006

Twitter Feasibilty Study Excerpt (2006) from 747 Media on Vimeo.

When did you first hear of Twitter? Four years ago, could people have predicted the evolution of this micro-blogging site at its onset?

Apparently, yes.

The 20-somethings that were interviewed as part of a study by 747 Media were able to assess the power of Twitter quite accurately, even though they had never used it. In this video, you will see them react to the information they’re given and talk through several of the applications that have made Twitter into what it is today.

Odd. I keep hearing that young people aren’t interested in Twitter, and that it’s most popular with the 35- to 50-yr-old demographic.

My experience tells me the same. I’m seeing that a lot of young people prefer Facebook over Twitter. I remember seeing some research on this.
