A (nonscientific) survey of twitter users (updated)

It is estimated that about 20% of people worldwide can't see the Milky Way from where they live, and it's therefore believed that many young people have never seen the Milky Way in their life. Since lots of young people use twitter, let's see what twitter users tell us!

Have seen the Milky Way:

Please note that this is most certainly not a scientific survey! If the tweets go viral, I think it will be interesting to see the results nonetheless.

Update 2013/11/11: So far, only 3 of 40 respondents (7.5%) say they have never seen the Milky Way.
