The Twitter Supremacy...

Oct 5th, 2011

To be fair, an individual from Andy's team told me to basically suck it and stop being a "doofus" and asked if I cared that #tcot is never trending on twitter. Actually, I do. The entire concept of faking what is billed as an open and free internet community is bullshit. Anyway... Here's what's up.

The conservative, troll-brigade has been having a jolly good time on twitter today, making fun of the Occupy Movement by using the hashtag #OccupyWallStreetMovies. At the same time, #OccupyWallStreet, a hashtag being used by supporters and detractors alike has failed consistently to trend for the last three weeks.

At 3:40pm CST 10/05/11, we began an experiment. We opened and refreshed windows using both tags simultaneously. Here are the results 45 minutes later.

First, the #OccupyWallStreetMovies screengrab

Now, the #OccupyWallStreet screengrab at the same time

And, lastly, the "trending" screengrab at the end of our little experiment
