1. I get to feature George Michael Bluth (Michael Cera) as the poster child for awkward teens.

To this point, maybe we don’t know the elusive teens as well as we think. Our understanding is surprisingly limited, and our predictions of their behavior are proving to be inaccurate.
Although Generation Y is tech savvy, they don’t embrace all the technology that we imagine them to. Just because new technology is available doesn’t mean they will use it. For instance, Twitter is becoming increasingly popular with older generations, but teens are resisting the urge to micro-blog.
Given the practices of this age group, I can’t help thinking Twitter will go the way of the 8-track and laser discs.
Why don’t kids use Twitter?
