Stats show that 81% of millennials check Twitter at least once per day and 65% of Twitter’s 15 million active users are people under the age of 34. How many of these are students? Students often comment on the important role social media has on their university experience; communicating with their peers as well as keeping up with businesses they follow. Due to this, this makes social media platforms an ideal place to appeal to students online. By having a presence on these platforms that students actively use on a daily basis you can target ads to students specifically for deals, promotions, new releases or simply just a product range you feel they will enjoy.
