StatShot: Idol Twitter and Jim Carrey

I don’t watch American Idol, so I’m not sure if there was some big scandalous upset last week, but something on the talent competition had the Twitterati rushing to cram urgent thoughts into 140 characters or less, giving the show its biggest tweet count on Trendrr‘s list of Top Twittered Broadcast Shows since this season started. Heroes had its highest showing since February, while “March Madness” cooled.


Jim Carrey showed he can still open a film… on TorrentFreak’s list of the Most Pirated Movies on BitTorrent, as Yes Man came in at No. 1, bumping adorable dog story Marley and Me down to No. 4. Tony Jaa kicked his way onto the list in Ong-Bak 2, and the animated mouse Despereaux squeaked his way into the top 10.
