The study about online behaviour concludes Twitter is booming as a social media destination for American teenagers who complain about too many adults and too much drama on Facebook.
"The key is that there are fewer adults, fewer parents and just simply less complexity," said Amanda Lenhart of the Pew Research Centre, one of the study's authors. "They still have their Facebook profiles, but they spend less time on them and move to places like Twitter, Instagram and Tumblr."
In the poll, 94% of teens who are social media users have a profile on Facebook - flat from the previous year. Twenty-six per cent of teenage social media users were on Twitter, more than double the figure in 2011 of 12%.
The researchers surveyed 802 parents and their 802 teenagers. The phone poll was conducted between July 26 and September 30 last year.
