The Hills Are Alive With the Sound of Tweeting

Just when you thought the Twitter-verse couldn’t get any more vapid — BAM! — MTV’s The Hills creeps in to become one of most-Tweeeted TV shows last week, according to Trendrr. Kanye West’s gay fish gave South Park a boost and Saturday Night Live finished the week strong, thanks to the actually-kinda-funny Zac Efron.


And after that Egyptian temple thing (and Ben’s awful “young-” looking wig), there was certainly plenty of fodder for Losties** to discuss.


Vin Diesel and his Fast & Furious crew sped their way to the top of TorrentFreak’s Most Pirated Movies on BitTorrent list after a Telesync‘d version of the film got out into the wild. It was followed by the HBO drama Taking Chance as well as the Mickey Rourke-starrer The Wrestler.

TorrentFreak data is based on http downloads of .torrent files from various BitTorrent sites. The data is collected by TorrentFreak and is for informational and educational reference only. Currently both DVDrips, DVD Screeners and R5 rips are counted. The “back” designation means that the title was in the list before and has reappeared, possibly in a new format.

** Lost gets separated out because the word “lost” is rather common. Trendrr believes it has stripped out the references to keys and wallets, but we still give the Oceanic Six & Co. their own graph just to be safe.
