StatShot: Heroes Tops Twitter

We’re adding a new data point to the StatShot this week. Trendrr will be providing a weekly snapshot of the most Twittered broadcast TV shows.

Trendrr is an online service that tracks and graphs consumption trends across social networks, blogs, torrents, Amazon, Craigslist, Twitter, Google News and dozens of video sites. Trendrr is a white list partner with Twitter, which gives the company access to the full public timeline via an open API.

Heroes had the most Tweets Dec. 4 – 10 (perhaps because everyone in the audience is prescribing ways to fix the ailing show). CSI and 30 Rock enjoyed nice bumps on the day after their broadcast, while Gossip Girl shot up above all but Heroes after its broadcast night.


Over at TorrentFreak’s list of Most BitTorrented Movies, Resident Evil: Degeneration was No. 1 with a bullet. The CG film inspired by the video game won’t even be shown in U.S. theaters, but it has racked up more than a million downloads. New is the name of the game on the list this week as Degeneration was joined by fellow first-timers Open Season 2, Wild Child and Eagle Eye.

TorrentFreak data is based on http downloads of .torrent files from various BitTorrent sites. The data is collected by TorrentFreak and is for informational and educational reference only. Currently both DVDrips, DVD Screeners and R5 rips are counted. The “back” designation means that the title was in the list before and has reappeared, possibly in a new format.
