Washington, D.C.—The total share of online adults in the U.S. who use the microblogging service Twitter has risen to 13%, up from 8% in November, according to a new report
from the Pew Research Center.
Of those users, 95% own a mobile phone and more than half (54%) access Twitter on their handheld devices, according to the report. Pew's findings come from a poll conducted on landline and cell phones in April and May, which drew 2,277 respondents.
This week, Twitter rolled out a new search feature that not only shows topics but also related photos and videos, according to the company's blog.
