Britain’s Twitter users: young, metropolitan and angry about civil liberties

Britain’s 5.5 million Twitter users are younger than average members of the public, slightly more likely to vote Labour, and distinctly more liberal, according to a survey published today.They are also more likely to live in London, less likely to live in the north of England, and marginally more likely to belong to a lower social class.The YouGov poll may help to explain why libertarian campaigns appear to flourish on Twitter.
