Technical explanation:

Xbox (Green)

How does this work:                                                  

  • Anything with xbox one next to each other are included
  • Anything with the four words xbox one backwards compatibility anywhere in the tweet are included
  • Anything with xbone are included
  • Anything with xb1 are included
  • Anything with the term xbox that isn’t the phrase xbox 360 are included. If a game like Tomb Raider are/is coming out for both the xbox one and the xbox 360 it is included under the OR rule. This is done because a lot of people just say I got a new xbox, and the majority of xbox only tweets are about the xbox one.

Playstation (Blue):

How does this work:

  • Anything with ps4 are included
  • Anything with the words playstation 4 next to each other are included
  • Anything with the term playstation that isn’t the phrase playstion 3, playstation vita, or playstation 2 is included. If a game like Guilty Gear Xrd are/is coming out for the PS4 and PS3, PS4 and PSV, or all three it is included under the OR rule. This is done because a lot of people just tweet I got a new playstation, and the majority of playstation only tweets are about the playstation 4.

Wii-U (orange)

How does this work:

  • Anything with wii-u is included
  • Anything with wiiu is included
  • Anything with wii u next to each other is included

Note: Since I can only use four OR commands I omitted the abbreviation that is hardly used and has the least impact on the charts. The impact of the removal is approximately 2,285 units for the month using xbo -xbox -xbone -xb1. The remaining xbo entrees may or may not be less than 2,285 as xbo could be a typo for many things including xbox, hbo, etc.

Note 2: Trends are not cap sensitive

Note 3: If someone would help my grammar I would appreciate it. English is my second language, but I will do my best.

Here are some examples of how the algorithms work. As you can see topsy does a great job while not being perfect.

Since people this seems to be the first social media trends for many I am including the algorithm details in this post.

Perhaps expected a bigger bump for the Cod bundle, but otherwise the month went by as expected.

TGS over 2.5 times bigger than Gamescom is interesting.



Interesting charts here. Now I wonder why all three consoles dipped in trend on August 9th.

Nice bump for TGS. Fall should be interesting. Sony has a couple more shows, I think?



I may seem anal here, but shouldn't we call them current gen now?

Anyway, pretty good insight. Wii U performing abysmally as expected.

Not anal at all as far as I'm concerned. It's pretty ridiculous, really.

Changed the title. I grew up in the 90's and remember next-gen meening current gen until the official next gen was released. So I just went with it.

Just shows what I have been saying all along. Gamescom is not as big of a deal as people were making it out to be.
