Twitter released some interesting stats from the New iPad announcement yesterday. The chart is broken down by Tweets per minute and time of day. When the Apple event started at 10:00am (PST) Twitter was seeing about 3,000 Tweets per minute with the term “iPad”. This gradually increased and bolted up to about 9,000 Tweets per minute when the name was officially revealed as “The New iPad”. The peak was at 10:41am when the $499 starting price was announced (us Canadians will pay $529), Twitter saw about 11,000 Tweets per minute.
