Michael Jackson R.I.P.

Sad news yesterday night. An icon passed away.

Allow me to look at this from a purely web perspective. The news of his dead made 30% of Twitter traffic the last day, which is huge. The film below shows the evolution of the traffic on Twitter in a Tagcloud.

Techcrunch reported that TMZ.com (a gossip site who was the first to report the news) was down multiple times due to the huge traffic.

Viral video Charts shows that in todays top 20 videos, 19 of them are video clips of Michael Jackson
