twitter’s liberal bias

by Sebastian Benthall

Pew Research Center recently put out a report on Twitter’s liberal bias. It argues that overall sentiment on certain political events on Twitter is far to the left of national surveys. Also, people on Twitter complain a lot (are more negative). That makes sense, because Twitter has only 13% of the country even looking at it, and only 3% of the population posting or retweeting. And many of these people are younger.
