So this week should kill the Twitter prediction myth dead right?

Posted by: AB_Excello on Jun 05, 12:46 in response to Facto's post As of right now, Splice is trending on Twitter. No other...

Only one trending and it got killed by....oh, everything. Got killed PTA, got killed in every measureable metric except Tweets.

Data from this stinker had to skew any Twitter predictive models for the other movies, so that had to be an 0 fer the openers to the HP guys.

So being the 2nd weakest opening in the last couple of months should kill this myth dead to everyone except the HP scam artis...er, researchers who'll no doubt cherry pick through their data to hit 98% accuracy right?

As of right now, Splice is trending on Twitter. No other movie - opener or not - is currently trending there. {nm} Facto Jun 04, 18:39

Probably a lot of "There's a movie called Splice playing here... anyone know what that is?" stuff like that... {nm} secretstalker Jun 04, 18:41

"Who's up for a movie and a splice of pizza?" {nm} islander Jun 04, 18:45

L3! Good one! :) {nm} secretstalker Jun 04, 18:50

Nah.. I checked it last night, too, and it was all about wanting to go see it. It had by far the highest intensity of tweets among openers Facto Jun 04, 18:57

not sure it does mean much on IMDB, being told something has gone up 700% in popularity can be misleading.. CityHall Jun 04, 20:08

This is the exact reason trending means little on Twitter apart from getting a snapshot. {nm} horlicks Jun 04, 20:15

Obviously, and I mentioned this in my previous post about that fact (that it had gone up 700% in interest this week, on Imdb.com). {nm} Facto Jun 05, 06:42

Never under estimate the power of Twitter... {nm} Biff68 Jun 04, 20:04

Trending means little in itself. Greek has doubled its tweets for the entire day. Splice is #2 though. horlicks Jun 04, 20:06

I think both Splice and GHTG are under estimated right now. The 1st has legs to last, the second I saw at premiere and was hilarious {nm} leshann Jun 04, 20:27

samples of trending Splice tweets on Twitter... RazorHawk Jun 04, 20:36

And I thought RT critics could be mean... {nm} Matias Jun 04, 20:50

I don't know about anyone else, but now I want to see it!! {nm} Biff68 Jun 04, 21:25

Absolutely agree, I'll be reserving it on the Redbox {nm} Chefbobcat Jun 04, 21:50

You should see it... though one of those tweets was accurate but I won't spoil it by saying which :) {nm} secretstalker Jun 04, 23:36

You sure you didn't just find the negative ones, and leave out the positive or interested/curious ones.. ? ;-) {nm} Facto Jun 05, 06:40

uh dude... RazorHawk Jun 05, 08:09

It's been a long time since you "uh dude"-ed me, if ever :-P {nm} Facto Jun 05, 08:13

Checking for myself - here are the latest tweets about Splice (if this copy/paste will work, that is.. ) Facto Jun 05, 09:13

F.ex: "Splice != Species, there's no Deus ex Machina, it's about what we do to ourselves. It's too smart for most viewers." {nm} Facto Jun 05, 09:15

So this week should kill the Twitter prediction myth dead right? AB_Excello Jun 05, 12:46

Word. From here on, "It's trending on Twitter", means ZERO. Or maybe the opposite. {nm} goodvibe61 Jun 05, 13:04
