Twitter Research

I'm putting together some research for a little school project, so I put together a short survey regarding Twitter use. It shouldn't take too long. If you get a chance in the next few days to fill this out, please do – I would really appreciate it. Also, if you know any other Twitterers who might be willing to provide some information, please forward this on.

You can respond in the comments of this blog.
