RUSH: You know, I haven’t mentioned the Twitter handle today, and I should have. The new Twitter handle (it’s not new now, it’s been up and running over a week) is @RealRLimbaugh. Kayleigh McEnany retweeted this last night. We had a tweet during the debate last night, “Winning, winning, winning!” Yeah, we had a couple of them.
We had a couple of tweets up there during the debate last night, “Winning, winning, winning!” and Kayleigh McEnany retweeted that. We are the number-one Twitter follower listed on the president’s Twitter page. So, yeah, it’s @RealRLimbaugh. We’ve mastered it in less than two weeks here, folks, and nobody ought to be surprised at that.
RUSH: You want to hear some Twitter stats, folks? You know, I have long said that one of the mistakes the media makes and that the Democrat Party makes is they assume that Twitter is America — and I know for a fact that it isn’t. Twitter is not America. It can’t be. We have not become that depraved as a nation. We have not become that perverted.
We have not become that Marxist leftist. We are not Twitter. Well, here’s a little survey research data from the Pew Research Center: “Most U.S. adults on Twitter post only rarely. But a small share of highly active users, most of whom are Democrats, produce the vast majority of tweets.
“The Center’s analysis finds that just 10% of users produced 92% of all tweets from U.S. adults since last November, and that 69% of these highly prolific users identify as Democrats or Democratic-leaning independents.” (scoffs) Democrat-leaning independents. So proves my point. “Most U.S. adults on Twitter post only rarely. … a small share of highly active users, most of whom are Democrats, produce the vast majority of tweets. … just 10% of users produced 92% of all tweets…”
Do you know what that means? That means that 90% of users are producing 8%. That’s the way to look at it: 90% of the people on Twitter are only producing 8% of tweets, and 10% are producing 92% of all tweets, and they’re almost all Democrats, which means they’re miserable and unhappy, ticked off, you name it.
