I like number 45 – Ross Perot!
How big is the Twitter hype?
Google News tells us that in the hour before we published this post, there were 40,820 news stories published that used the company’s name.
Last we heard from anybody official, micro-blogging service Twitter had about 6 million unique visitors per month.
That’s pretty big for a a relatively new startup. But let’s be serious: in the grand scheme of things, 6 million people isn’t very many.
To illustrate this point, we decided to come up with a list of 100 things more popular than Twitter. We looked at variety of metrics — circulation, ratings, units sold, tickets sold, unique visitors, etc — so obviously, the list isn’t scientific. It’s directional. (And, you know, fun.)
