A recent survey found that only 1% of Americans use Twitter for their daily activities, and that nearly half of those people say they never tweet at all.
That’s not to say that people who use Twitter regularly are not aware of Google’s massive data usage and restrictions.
The data restrictions are a bit more nuanced than Google’s: For example, Google requires you to have a Google account to tweet, but Twitter is open to users of any mobile or web-based platform.
You also must have a Gmail account to use Google search, but the company’s terms of service specifically prohibit you from using Google services in your search queries, which includes Twitter.
As a result, many users of Twitter don’t actually use Twitter at all: they either use the social network to share news, or to engage in a bit of offline conversation with friends and family.
