StatShot: Grammy Tweets and a Body of Lies

The Grammys found gold on Twitter last night, with nearly 27,500 people buzzing about winners and losers. Heck, the official Grammy site had its own Twitter feed going (a poor stand-in for not live-streaming the event). As has been the case for a few weeks with our Top Twittered Broadcast TV Shows from Trendrr, Lost had the most tweets for the week. The big surprise was Saturday Night Live finishing so strong, which is odd considering everything outside of the “Weekend Update” segment blew.


Leonardo DiCaprio and Russell Crowe’s Body of Lies may not have done much in theaters, but it’s No. 1 with a bullet on TorrentFreak’s list of the Top Ten Most Pirated Movies on BitTorrent. Most of the rest of the list is holdovers from last week (who knew people had a soft spot for animated animals?)
