Twitter is on Oprah Today
 
 
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.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
