Today nerds and cool social network types have an excuse to watch Oprah this afternoon. Twitter's CEO Evan Williams and the King of Twitter Ashton Kutcher will be Oprah's guests on the show. Ashton Kutcher won the race against CNN last night, reaching 1,000,000 followers on Twitter before CNN did. Ashton Kutcher was live on Ustream. The last couple of minutes before he won were fun to watch. Demi Moore was there too - you gotta love the internet.
Oprah is highly influential in general, but also very much in taking techie things mainstream. Just remember how fast the Kindle sold out after Jeff Bezos was on her show. Expect a major spike in new Twitter accounts this afternoon. Oprah got her Twitter account today and already has almost 100,000 followers.
