CES 2012: The Technology Industry Is All A-Twitter

For anyone unfamiliar with the event, the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is a major technology-related trade show held each January in Las Vegas. With this year being the most attended in the history of CES, you can bet Twitter was full of chatter with up-to-date information on every new tech invention.

This year, there were more tweets about CES on the first day than any other year before, according to mashable. But of course, with Twitter’s popularity raising, that shouldn’t really come as a surprise to anyone. Overall, CES 2012 had more Twitter popularity spikes than in 2011.

Monday, more people tweeted about Microsoft than any other tech brand, followed closely by LG and Samsung. However, on average, those who tweeted about Google had the most followers. By far, the most mentioned digital trends included Ultrabook computers, tablets, and OLED display technology. Again, the fact that tablets were high in the list of discussion topics shouldn’t be surprising, as their popularity has skyrocketed. As for OLED display technology, LG introduced its new 55-inch OLED HDTV on Monday, which likely lead to the topic’s popularity in the twittersphere.
