The problem with this is that people often incorrectly complete demographic information on these sites. I often use "other" as a race or even "male" as a gender and "none of your business" for income. Also, how do businesses factor into this equation? I don't think we will ever get a clear picture, but I know many people on many social media platforms, but to note that twitter is more appealing to african americans than facebook is misleading.
Some colleagues and I are hosting a Twitter chat with some students. I would normally use - and recommend my students using - TweetChat. Are there any new tools out there that would provide a better experience for the students? I'm concerned about getting our hashtag hijacked, which happens all the time, but TweetChat requires each user to block spammers individually. Any ideas? Thoughts? Thanks!
