70% of U.S. users say they trust Twitter news

The Pew Research Institute, a think tank specializing in analyzing the awareness and opinions of people in the United States and around the world, has published the results of a Twitter and news-related survey. It was found that 70% of users who read news on Twitter said that most of them trusted Twitter news at least to some extent.

The Pew Research Institute conducted a survey of 2,548 Twitter users from May 17 to 31, 2021 and analyzed the results. As a result, for the purpose of the subject using Twitter, 42% of entertainment was ranked first, followed by news of 20%. However, 69% of the subjects said that they were getting information about news on Twitter, even though news was not the main purpose of use. 30% of respondents said they did not get information about the news, and 1% said no.

Of the 69% of subjects who said they were getting information about news on Twitter, 70% said they were watching news on Twitter for breaking news. When it comes to Twitter news credibility, 7% said they were quite confident, 60% said they had some confidence, 29% said they didn’t trust it very much, and 3% said they didn’t trust it at all.

It also turns out that user-supported parties are highly involved in the credibility of Twitter news. In the US, 74% of Democrats or similarly inclined users said they were quite or somewhat confident, compared to 52% of Republicans.

Twitter’s influence on American politics also differs depending on the political party it supports. 47% of Democrats say Twitter is primarily a good influence on American democracy, and only 28% say it has a bad effect. Republicans, on the other hand, said the good impact was 17% and the bad impact was 60%.

According to a survey released in May 2021 by the Pew Research Institute, 23% of Americans use Twitter. Related information can be found here.



Through the monthly AHC PC and HowPC magazine era, he has watched 'technology age' in online IT media such as ZDNet, electronic newspaper Internet manager, editor of Consumer Journal Ivers, TechHolic publisher, and editor of Venture Square. I am curious about this market that is still full of vitality.
