2011/2012 British Premier League to be remembered for many reasons

Many people would agree that the 2011/2012 British Premier League will not be remembered only for the fact that Manchester City won it after 44 years, but this season will also be remembered for how it ended.

Let me illustrate the dramatic finish with a few #PremierLeague mentions:


My point is made, I hope. More about the end of the Premier League season here.

Of equal interest to me, was the buzz on the Twitterverse. I tracked mentions for #PremierLeugue, #ManCity and #ManUtd. The three hashtags got 9901, 15333 and 5571 Twitter mentions on May 13th, respectively. Of further interest was hourly Twitter mentions, as depicted in the Topsy graph below:

It’s clear from the hashtag graph above that #ManCity’s dramatic comeback sent the Twitterverse into a frenzy. Indeed, this season will be spoken about for a long time to come, with tweeps arguing that events which made it go to the wire may not recur in their lifetime.
