Twitter Venn: Celebrity Deaths

By: Jeff Clark    Date: Fri, 26 Jun 2009

Here is a Venn Diagram made with Twitter Venn that shows the relative frequency of tweets made about the recent deaths of three celebrities - Michael Jackson, Farrah Fawcett, and Ed McMahon. This analysis was done around 7am EST today and the absolute numbers for tweets/day will certainly increase as more people in the US come online. I expect the proportions among the various combination regions to stay roughly the same.

A couple of points of interest:

  • Celebrity interest ranked by number of tweets is Michael > Farrah > Ed with ratios 62:6:1
  • Ed was mentioned together with both Michael and Farrah more often than he was by himself
