Bloomberg – Facebook’s IPO Wasn’t a Huge Hit on Twitter Either, Say Studies

Although Facebook’s IPO was one of the most popular Twitter topics of the day, the number of tweets about it was low compared to the frenzy of public mourning on the day Whitney Houston died (6.3 million) or when the death of Trayvon Martin hit the mainstream (680,724), according to PeopleBrowsr, which looked at the peak days of big Twitter memes. The Facebook IPO did surpass Anthony Weiner, who was the subject of 53,606 tweets one day last June as his scandal began to break out.
