Elizabeth Smart Engaged: Twitter Doesn’t Care.
[ Social Media]

Remember Elizabeth Smart? She’s getting married. When news like this breaks, you can expect it to be all over Twitter.

The country is clamoring for news about the engagement, as is evidenced by Google Trends. And while Twitter may often break news, and provide up to the second commentary, sometimes the conversation is just boring. This is one of those times.

In fact, Elizabeth Smart is not even a Twitter trend. One of the top trends is #mustybutthole. A Bronx Tale is also trending. It must be on TV.

Suffice it to say, this is one of those times when “the conversation” isn’t so much around what everybody actually wants to know about. Smart continues to be a hot search trend.

Anyhow, here’s the most interesting tweets about Elizabeth Smart from the last several hours.

    Could it be that celebrity news is a manufactured industry, and the Twitter audience genuinely doesn’t care, or (less harshly) doesn’t have anything to add to the conversation?

    This is not necessarily a bad thing, the service would not be improved by millions of “omg congratz elizabeth smart” tweets.

    It would be interesting to see more data on how much volume is pushing a trending topic – my guess is that if it looks like random junk, it’s just low-volume noise, indicating that not much is going on in the world right now.

      I don’t think it’s accurate to say that the Twitter audience doesn’t care about celebrity news.
