Music: Killing it on Twitter

2009 saw an absolute explosion of activity on Twitter, propelling it from a semi-obscure social networking site into a media giant. Music was a big part of that, and Twitter’s year end recap of the most tweeted about people and hashtags proves it. #musicmonday, the hashtag for users sharing their favorite tracks every Monday, was the year’s most popular hashtag while #SXSW the hashtag for  Austin’s influential indie fest took third. Meanwhile, Michael Jackson, Susan Boyle and Adam Lambert made a clean podium sweep for music as the most tweeted about people of the year.
