Bruno Mars and David Beckham among Twitter Winners on Super Bowl Night, says Searchmetrics

Study reveals minute-by-minute tweet trends on Super Bowl night

New York - February 06, 2014 - Super Bowl half time performer, Bruno Mars, generated more tweets per minute during the event than the other live act, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and he also beat rock band, U2, which premiered its new single in a half time commercial, according to a new analysis of Twitter activity.

Former Soccer star David Beckham and Terry Crews, the former NFL star and actor, also generated a high number of tweets per minute when they appeared in commercials during Super Bowl.

The findings come from digital marketing software and services company, Searchmetrics, which analyzed tweets-per-minute activity around a variety of topics during Super Bowl night.

"Twitter's data shows there were more than 24.9 million tweets about the game and halftime show on Sunday. Many advertisers invest millions of dollars on commercials and sponsorship during the event and our analysis gives a snapshot of the excitement generated on Twitter on the night," said Marcus Tober, CTO and founder of Searchmetrics, whose Enterprise SEO platform helps digital marketers track and measure their search and social media marketing activity.

About the study
Searchmetrics defined approximately 50 keywords/topics around the Super Bowl. The company's software then crawled Twitter to analyze how many times per minutes the specific words were mentioned within tweets. The company does not have full access to all of Twitter's data, so the numbers are based on a sub set of data giving an indication of trends but not absolute numbers.

Choosing the right cloud for your workloads is a balancing act that can cost your organization time, money and aggravation - unless you get it right the first time. Economics, speed, performance, accessibility, administrative needs and security all play a vital role in dictating your approach to the cloud. Without knowing the right questions to ask, you could wind up paying for capacity you'll never need or underestimating the resources required to run your applications.
Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...
