To all our “excitement” my American Idol twitter stats are panning out!
I know everyone has been sitting at the edge of their chairs waiting for our new American Idol (sarcasm) so I decided to upload the twitter stats of the last three finalists. The stats successfully predicted the person who was voted off yesterday and who was thought of as the all out winner by many. This might be a great way of analyzing and predicting most reality show competitions. I think this tool can make for a fun activity but more importantly I wonder if by analyzing twitter stats we can predict serious events and outcomes that are based on public approval.
