Twitter: Sign of a Mid-Life Crisis?

Is it just me, or is twitteronia being overrun by "middle aged" people?

Consider this an open-thread.

Considering that most of the people I hear talk about it are older people, I'd tend to agree. I'm looking at you Leo Laporte.

There are a lot of middle-aged/old celebrities on Twitter: Al Gore
John McCain, George Stephanopoulos, Demi Moore, Rick Sanchez, etc...

Hey punk, cut us some slack, we need something to distract us from our vanishing 401k's.

The average age of a Twitter user is 31, older than Myspace (26) and Facebook (27). As a professional tool, Twitter has catapulted in the past six months, and projects like tweetcongress.org aim to increase the usage of Twitter among older elites. If you want more information, the Pew Internet and American Life project posted a very interesting report on Twitter usage last month. (If you can't tell, I work for a new media firm.)
