Tech & social headlines: G+ & Twitter preferred by young US Democrats

The top pick today has to be the US study into the politics of social platforms. The study polled 3,058 young Americans finding that some social channels were more heavily republican versus democrat (and vice versa). Along with the link to the article below (including an interesting chart showing the comparison), I have also embedded the full #HarvardYouthPoll report too. Enjoy.
