Hashing Out a Champion

Hash marks in football.
Obviously, it’s been a while since my last post here. The reasons are many, and the excuses are mundane, but I’m still closely following the innovations and acquisitions going on at Twitter.

I will be finalizing and posting some of the drafts entries I constructed in the past few months, if only to create an accurate archive of events. Until then, I just wanted to let you know that I‘m still here, I’m still writing, and I‘m still trying to join the flock.

In the meantime, I want to point you to the recent update Twitter sent out regarding Tweets during the Champions League Final. I was surprised that the number trumped those during the 2010 World Cup, but still fell short of both the Super Bowl and New Year’s Eve—despite the size of the each team’s worldwide following. As the number of people using Twitter grows everyday, it shouldn’t be long before another globally shared event trumps the Tweets-per-second record holder.

I’m obviously glad the number of users is growing, and hope to be a part of their continued success some day soon. If that gets any closer, I’ll let you know when I see you see you on the ‘morrow, on the Web.
