#ibc2010 – I Fell In The Bloody Canal

Adrian J Cotterill, Editor-in-Chief

Regular readers will know that one of the services we offer is twitter hashtag reporting. We trap every tweet for industry shows (not as easy as it seems as Twitter only shows search results for 5 days worth of archives), store them in a database and then analyse them all (not manually we might add – though we do get to look at some of them as you will see below).

We then slice and dice everything so we know what sort of people are tweeting (we categorise them into exhibitors, punters, press, corporate, robots etc) and as you will have seen from all of our charts we figure out who has tweeted the most and most importantly compare the social media traffic between all the different shows.

Anyway, having nearly finished the report for #ibc2010 (which we will probably publish next week after it has gone to a couple of clients first) we came across this stream of twitter which we thought was hilarious…
