Though the average American was not invited to the royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton, that apparently has done little to thwart the chatter topping the list of hot topics on the internet.
Analysis of tweets, Facebook updates and blog posts by Webtrends, which gathers data on social media, shows that 65% of all social media related to the royal wedding has come from the U.S. in the past month. The U.K. has been responsible for just 20%.
Also from Webtrends: 911,000 wedding-related tweets were tracked in the past 30 days. That’s about 30,000 per day and accounts for 71% of all social media tracked by the Web analytics company.
Data from the web analysis shows that the amount of social media discussion related to the British royal wedding has overshadowed the talk of Japan’s earthquake and the Egyptian uprising.
