I'm wondering what you think about this, Nathan. I thought his day was over. I guess I was wrong. Does this reflect a movement of younger people to Twitter? I know some 11- and 12-year-olds who now have accounts.

 @profkrg Oh, his day is far from over. I'm not a huge Bieber fan, but he's only getting more popular. I think it definitely shows that younger people are using social media more and are following him as a result. That, and Gaga isn't really doing much YET worth people following her on Twitter. So, as she slowed down, he sped up.
