Speaking of gold mines, Twitter is sitting on a huge one–if it could just figure out how to refine it into something we’d buy.

New stats from Pew Internet suggest that 20% of 25 to 34 year olds have used Twitter, with those 18 to 24 only 1 point behind (19%). While that number drops off to just 2% by the time you get to adults over 65, 11% of the total US population have used the micro-blogging service.

Other interesting stats:

  • 27% of bloggers use Twitter
  • 35% of city-dwellers use Twitter
  • 76% of Twitter users use the internet wirelessly
  • Only 10% of those earning more than $75,000 use Twitter, while 17% of those making less than $30k use the service.

No data on how many people have ever seen a FAIL Whale, but we suspect it’s in the upper 90’s. ;-)

UPDATE: Twitter just announced new funding to help it figure out a revenue model.
