De 10 belangrijkste Tweets van 2010

Het jaar zit er bijna op. 2010 was zeker het jaar waarin Social Media "Buzz-achtige" vormen begon aan te nemen. Het is ook het jaar waarin Facebook de meest populaire website ter wereld werd en Google naar de tweede plaats verwees.

Apple had een mega-jaar met de lancering van de iPad wat de snelst verkopende device/gadget ooit werd naast ook nog de steeds populairdere iPhone en de duizelingwekkende aantallen apps die via de iTunes App Store werden gedownload.

Twitter
maakte de grootste groei door met 100 miljoen nieuwe gebruikers in de laatste 12 maanden. En hoewel voor veel niet gebruikers Tweets nog steeds worden omschreven als vooral niet relevante informatie weten de media en een slorige 170 miljoen Twitterrazzi inmiddels beter. Voor Twitter genoeg reden om een overzicht te maken van de "10 most powerful Tweets for 2010". Heb je tips of ideeen voor een lijstje met de 10 belangrijkste Nederlandse Tweets van 2010, plaats ze in de comments.

1. Anne Curry

After the massive 7.0 earthquake in Haiti, Doctors Without Borders flew in a team of physicians to assist the wounded, but they were unable to get clearance to land the plane. Reporter Ann Curry used Twitter to convince the U.S. Air Force to allow the flight to land.

2. The Whitehouse

When Russian President joined Twitter, the White House immediately reached out to welcome him to the Twitterverse. Obama’s quote: Red phones no longer required.

3. Leigh Fazzina

Twitter to the rescue: When she crashed her bike in a forest with no cell phone reception, a gravely injured triathlete saved her own life when she tweeted out a desperate call for help.

4. BP Global PR

After the Deepwater Horizon oil platform exploded in the Gulf of Mexico, causing one of the largest in oil spills in history, it was a parody account, not BP’s official Twitter account, that defined the discussion–spoofing the company’s attempts to improve its public image. “Gulf Oil Spill” was the #1 Trend on Twitter in 2010

5. President Of Ecuador

In late September, civil unrest in Ecuador increased dramatically after a new law cut benefits for public servants. President Rafael Correa accused opposition and military forces of a coup attempt, and used Twitter to declare a state of emergency in a Tweet. Leaders across Latin America and the world tweeted in response to show their support for the people of Ecuador

6. Clarence House

In a royal first, Clarence House, the Prince of Wales’ private office, created a Twitter account to announce Prince William’s engagement to Kate Middleton. Not how Henry VIII did it

7.  Johnathan Schwartz

When the CEO of one of the most high-profile technology companies in the world announced he was stepping down, he kept his resignation letter to 140 characters. Jonathan Schwartz left Sun Microsystems with this simple message

8. John M Foster

Twitter was a powerful campaign tool during the 2010 U.S. Midterm Elections, and Election Night results often broke first on Twitter. Demonstrating how quickly the world of political communications is changing, Idaho incumbent Walt Minnick’s campaign manager issued a concession Tweet

9. FIFA World Cup

The FIFA World Cup final represented the largest period of sustained activity for an event in Twitter’s history: during the final game, people from 172 countries tweeted in 27 different languages. Twitter put fans in direct touch with teams, players and commentators–and when Spain celebrated its big win in the Final, defender Carles Puyol captured the zeal with a Twitpic of the scene from his perch at the victory ceremony

10. Conan O’Brien

After his departure from the Tonight Show, Conan O’Brien used Twitter to announce that he was hitting the road for two-month-long comedy tour, called “Legally Prohibited From Being Funny on Television.” Fans jumped at the chance to see Conan live: shows were almost sold out in a matter of hours.
