So, here is Twitter’s criteria for the “Top Tweets of 2011” list it shared with ABC News.
Pay attention to the phrases in bold:
Over 100 million people around the world log in to Twitter every day to tweet about everything from their daily commutes to the meals they eat — but many have used the social networking tool this year for something much more important: share important events with people who could be thousands of miles away.
Every year, Twitter compiles a year-in-review to recap what the company believes were the most important tweets. They highlight the “best” according to the level of “impact, resonance, and relevance,” and take into account the big stories that first broke on Twitter — not by news agencies — but by people looking to share a photo, a thought, or a moment in time with people they may never meet.
Well. Ahem. That would certainly describe former Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner’s tweets and twitpics seen ’round the world.
But not a mention of Weinergate to be found.
Instead, the top 10 list includes tech entrepreneur Peter Shankman’s joke food order at tony Morton’s steakhouse and NBA player Kevin Durant’s whine about the lockout.
Maybe I’ll make my own list for the year. Send in your suggestions. Or tweet them to me at @michellemalkin.blog comments powered by Disqus
