Celebrities on Twitter

There has been a lot of attention on Twitter this week to three celebrity-related topics. Early in the week there was a lot of discussion about Susan Boyle, the candidate on Britain's Got Talent. In the middle of the week there was Ashton Kutcher becoming the first Twitter user to have more than 1,000,000 followers. Finally, on friday, Oprah joined Twitter and featured it on her show.

I've used Twitter Venn to compare the current rate at which these three people are being referred to in the TwitterSphere. Susan Boyle is slightly behind Oprah right now and far ahead of Asthon Kutcher. These results reflect the current zeitgeist and could be quite different tomorrow. It's also interesting to note the high frequency of the hashtag #herebeforeoprah within oprah references. Click on the image or this link to see what it's like right now.
