Apple's iPad Announcement Measured in Tweets


Twitter released this chart, tracking the number of tweets per minute with the word "iPad" in them during Apple's iPad event yesterday. As shown in the graph above, the highest peak occurred just after Tim Cook announced that the new iPad would be priced at $499, the same pricing structure as the iPad 2.

Other prominent spikes occurred when the iPad was actually announced, when Apple shared that 4G would be included, and when it was shared that the 16GB iPad 2 would stick around for $399.

Ah, yes. Don't underestimate the power of Twitter. Yesterday, for the first time ever, I signed up for mobile alerts, for the purpose of getting MacRumors iPad-related tweets pushed to my phone. Never thought I would see that day come. :o


I seldom use Twitter, but I totally did the same exact thing for the exact same reasons.

That's awesome. Glad to see I'm not alone in my obsession with Apple launches. I think I'll leave them on, actually.

No spike when Tim Cook said "and BOOM"... Disappointed.

*lol*

Some people have too much time.

I find that viewing the MacRumors Forum Spy is akin to TV channel surfing.

You have also too much time. ;-)
