Survey Says

SOPA/PIPA Discussed More Than the Super Bowl, Oscars, Oprah Finale and American Idol Finale

Says a new study.

A new report from sentiment analytics firm General Sentiment shows, astoundingly, that the Stop Online Piracy and Protect IP Acts have not only been discussed online more than any other legislation, but they’ve been discussed more than the Super Bowl the Oscars, the Oprah Winfrey Show finale and the American Idol finale and premiere. “When compared to 2011’s biggest online events, the SOPA/PIPA Protest ranked third in overall volume,” the report says. Guess that means SOPA/PIPA were discussed more than any other legislation, too. Additionally: “Wikipedia proved to be the top influencer, generating over 4.1M mentions on January 18; 99.1 percent of mentions about the SOPA and PIPA Protest came from social media and Twitter; and the most common hashtags were #wikipediablackout, #StopSOPA and #FactsWithoutWikipedia.
