Twitter pulled off three percent, while Reddit and Tumblr were being used by one percent and less than one percent respectively. Only about three-quarters of teens have access to a laptop or desktop in households earning less than $30,000. As of now 95-percent of the teens own s smartphone and 45-percent of them say they are online on a constant basis.
