Can this possibly be the only story that connects Twitter to The Masters golf tournament? Remember when every big media event had a Twitter angle? Ratings were down a little this year – even though Tiger Woods made a run, and it was close to the end –  but maybe the media romance is cooling. No, AllThingsD is talking about Twitter and Comedy Central, though the story hook is that the network is buying Promoted Trends.

Be careful, though, the study uses data from 2009 and may not reflect how Twitter has become slightly more mainstream since then.
