Six out of 10 Twitter users will actively engage with the government to raise critical issues affecting them and the community. This is far higher than the 29.30% of the surveyed youth who were not on the platform, reveals the latest research findings of Twitter India’s youth engagement project, #PowerOf18.
Kicking off just two months ahead of Lok Sabha elections, the survey also revealed another interesting finding: A high 96.50% of Karnataka youth on Twitter will vote this time. Sixty-one per cent of them were convinced that they were contributing to the public debate by tweeting.
More than half (51.70%) of the youth surveyed in the State use Twitter to express their opinions and be heard, and the same percentage will use Twitter to gather support for a cause or movement.
