We were faster than Twitter in analysing tweets from Apple’s iPad event


On March 7th, Apple held a keynote event unveiling its new iPad. Twittie was collecting and analysing tweets posted during this event. Having crunched almost 500,000 tweets and 6 hours after the event finished, we published the infographic. We also tweeted about it, of course. A couple of days later we were surprised to find that 20 hours afterwards, 26 hours after Apple’s event ended, Twitter itself tweeted a very similar graph. Check out the corresponding tweets:

Our graph seem to be more complete, having tracking additional iPad-related keywords, as well as Apple-related keywords for comparison. Maybe Twitter got inspired… ;) One way or another, we are happy to be the ones delivering the data before the world’s #1 real-time social network. Check out Twittie - innovative geolocation analytics for Twitter – and stay tuned for more infographics appearing on this special page.
