Here's an NBA Playoffs Bracket Based on Twitter Mentions
Just two days after declaring the Pittsburgh Penguins Stanley Cup Champions, the data analysts at Twitter have turned their attention to the NBA. Using the same measurement system -- counting the number of mentions each team gets on Twitter -- they determined that the Miami Heat would take home the (Twitter) championship this year. I'd be interested to see how accurate these kinds of calculations are for the regular season. I have a feeling that my Denver Nuggets wouldn't do too well -- it's hard to Tweet about your favorite team with a paper bag over your head.
