Today, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has announced that it is standing down in Nevada, where they have been confiscating Cliven Bundy’s cattle, as reported at Liberty Unyielding.
In the wake of the announcement, Twitter was abuzz. In fact, there were so many tweets that I was surprised that it was not trending. This is something that has bugged me before, so I did a mini experiment.
At 2:43 pm, the trends were as follows:
I clicked on #jackandjackparadise, since it was the most popular hashtag and selected “all.” Then I selected #BronxBombers, which was the last item on the trending list, and again selected “all.”
Finally, I typed in #BundyRanch and once again selected “all.”
Then, I started writing this post, which is where we are now.
#jackandjackparadise – the hashtag stated to be the most popular on Twitter, had 338 new results since I started writing this.
#BronxBombers had 5 new tweets:
and #BundyRanch had 523 new results.
It is now 2:53 pm EST. The results above reflect a 10 minute time frame and I intentionally captured the images with as much speed as my little fingers could type.
To me, it seems that #BundyRanch should be listed, mais non?
Obviously, this is not a scientific experiment, but it did confirm my personal suspicions. It is something worth exploring further, perhaps?
Or, is there an explanation that someone can give that I am missing?
