StatShot: Twitter Enjoys Some “Motherlove”

Whether you loved it or found it wildly distasteful, tons of people Twittered about SNL’s Motherlover this weekend, giving the sketch show some big social media buzz, according to Trendrr. Oprah’s presence continues to loom large over the micro-blogging community, and more tweets about American Idol are sure to come as the talent show wraps up its season. It will be interesting to watch which TV shows get Twittered in the coming weeks with so many show seasons finishing up.


Lost** lost a little bit of its Twitter mojo, probably because they don’t have Faraday to kick around anymore. Expect a lot of Twitter chatter for this week’s season finale.


Though it topped the weekend box office, the Star Trek reboot was only the sixth Most Pirated Movies on BitTorrent last week as reported by TorrentFreak. Which in this case, is probably a good thing. The superhero flick Push topped the list and Jason Statham kept Cranking out the illicit copies.

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.
