It's the most devastating moment in a young man's life, when he quite reasonably says to himself, "I shall never play The Dane!" Or be a professional footballer, or have to give up his young person's railcard, or remember Doctor Who the first time around. But fear not, ageing boys and girls, for you will always have a home at Twitter.
According to Comscore, Twitter traffic neared 10 million hits in February, which is a gobsmacking 700 per cent up on last year. There's been an explosion of 5 million hits in the last two months alone as Twitter has hit the headlines.
But interestingly, Reuters reporter Alexei Oreskovic analysed the demographics of tweeters, and discovered that the site's traffic increase has been driven by older users: tweeters aged 25-54. This tweets in the face of the traditional early adopter model, which shows the younger digital native generation being hip to all the latest fads, like Pokemon and leg warmers. Wait, do the kids still say 'hip'?
