Twitter got around 290 monthly unqique visitors. that day they had vastly more because it was in all media.
Its not Twitter accounts, its just visitors to the page. a huge percentage of the visitors had either heard about the oscar thing or they simply were searching for something else and bounces off the site immediately.
Twitter, the microblogging site, was flooded with traffic after host Ellen DeGeneres waded into the audience for a photo during the Los Angeles event, telecast on Walt Disney Co.’s ABC.
She gathered up Meryl Streep, Jennifer Lawrence, Kevin Spacey, Jared Leto and Lupita Nyong’o, and handed her Samsung smartphone to Bradley Cooper to take the shot. The impromptu selfie set the record for the most-retweeted post ever and temporarily disrupted Twitter’s service for some users, bringing the microblogging site tons of publicity.
“We crashed and broke Twitter,” DeGeneres said later from the stage. “We made history.”
All of the Hwood morons that own some of this bubble will be parted with some of their "new" $$$... welcome to the near-term top. Yes, I prefer finding overhyped, overvalued equities and then taking the appropriate course of action... yep.
