The Wall Street Journal conducted a survey using millions of Twitter profiles to produce a composite of the typical user. No word yet on whether she is related to Julia, the composite woman in Obama’s life.

More of the WSJ‘s details:

She’s American, 28, has 208 followers, loves her iPhone, talks endlessly about her family and fashion – and her favorite color is purple.

Here are some other results from the survey :

  • Roughly half of all tweets are sent from the U.S.
  • Members follow fewer people than follow them.
  • Female users outnumber males by 53% to 47%.
  • Women tweet more about family and fashion.
  • Men prefer to tweet about sports and technology.
  • The average user has sent nearly 800 Tweets.
