Hello again, Twitter fans! 2010 is drawing to a close, and the folks at Twitter are taking a look back at the way the site has been used this year by analyzing the 25 billion(!) tweets that were sent in 2010. They've picked out the top 10 trends, top 10 hashtags, and even the most powerful individual tweets. This week, let's review Twitter's 2010 before we jump into talking about apps and services.
First Up, Top Trends!
The largest ecological disaster in American history, the BP Gulf Oil Spill, edged out the world's largest sporting event, the FIFA World Cup, for top trend of the year. The oil spill had a global impact, but you'd expect mostly American tweets about it, so it's quite astounding that it was more discussed than the World Cup, which has fans in every country Twitter reaches. Other World-Cup related trends made the list, though, with vuvuzela (the annoying plastic World Cup horn) at #5 and Pulpo Paul (the octopus who predicted the World Cup results) at #10.
Inception, at #3, was the most talked-about movie of the year, while Justin Bieber ranked as the most-discussed person, at #8. In tech, Apple's iPad (#5) beat out Google's Android mobile OS (#6). You can check out the entire list at Twitter's 2010 trends page.Continue reading Twitter Tuesday: Twitter's year in review, top trends, and most powerful tweetsTwitter Tuesday: Twitter's year in review, top trends, and most powerful tweets
