Tech Talk-Royal Baby Social Stats

You gotta Tweet the baby
    "The new royal heir of the United Kingdom."
    Few babies debut with this kind of fanfare.  I didn't.  Maybe McClanahan.
    There were gun salutes.
    (Canon fires.)
    And grand proclamations.
    (Crier announcing birth.)
    The pitter patter of little royal tweets reached the millions.
    Twitter's peak royal baby buzz on the royal birth day came minutes after the birth announcement at 8-37 p.m..  That's London time -- 3-37 p.m. in the Eastern U.S. -- and it generated 25 thousand 300 tweets each minute.
    The highest volume of Twitter traffic, from the U.S., the U.K. and Canada.  France and Italy were active too.
    Facebook's royal baby peak came at the same time with just over 31 thousand mentions.
    Within one hour, Facebook says the royal baby had been mentioned more than one million times on the site worldwide.
    Not surprisingly, Facebook found the most buzz came from Great Britain.  The U.S. was second.  Then came Canada, Italy and Australia.
    The groups chatting the most about the baby boy, women ages 18 to 34.
    After the royal birth and the royal debut, the topic that generated social media chatter, speculation about his name.
