@deanshaw Twitter Madness Tourney: Round 2 Recap

Round 2

@ChrisBrogan v. @Webtrends: this was a tough call.  @Webtrends really only offered me a comparison between Omniture. Coremetrics, Webtrends and Google Analytics and a demo of Facebook’s Conversion Funnel but sometimes ‘less is more’ and by ‘more’ I mean the 94 tweets spewed from @ChrisBrogan (when exactly does this guy work?) If you eliminate tweets about himself he actually tweeted 4 times.
Winner: @Webtrends

@MeetingBoy v. @ShannonPaul: @MeetingBoy can be funny, like a poor man’s Dilbert, but he just had a bad two days.  @ShannonPaul came through with a link to a post on tracking tweets with Google Analytics and another on touching on Facebook being an overrated business tool.
Winner: @ShannonPaul

@DRUNKHULK v. @sysomos: Just like @meeting boy, @DRUNKHULK can be funny, but he also had a bad round giving me nothing amusing.  @sysomos committed the sin of reposting tweets multiple times but offered just enough content to get over on the HULK
Winner: @sysomos

@spikejones v. @hubspot: Hubspot is always good for an informative link and interesting webcasts but there’s a gazillion (really, I counted them) that give me the same thing.  What Twitter needs is more sarcasm (and cowbell).  Based on that, I am going to give the edge to @spikejones.  Although, he better step it up in the next round
Winner: @spikejones

@adage v. @moconews: this was a tough matchup.  Both showed up with some great links and original content.  But someone’s got to win
Winner: @adage

@KISSmetrics v. @andybeal: I love @andybeal like a brother and you really should follow him and his site www.marketingpilgrim.com BUT he caught a tough draw in @KISSmetrics who beat him simply on volume of great content.
Winner: @KISSmetrics

@jowang v. @JustinKownacki: No one likes @jowyang like @jowyang likes @jowyang so if you like @jowyang like @jowyang likes @jowyang you’ll like @jowyang.  @JustinKownacki? He does his own web show @TheBarsitasTV. ‘Nuf said.
Winner: @JustinKownacki

@digitalalex v. @mktgdouchebag: I like Clickthrough Rates as much as the next guy, but once in awhile I need a little snark.
Winner: @mktgdouchebag

@TheOnion v. @erictpeterson: It’s The Onion for crissakes
Winner: @TheOnion

@dmscott v. @adrants: @adrants just killed it with so much great info I thought my brain was gonna vomit from overindulgence.
Winner: @adrants

@gilliatt v. @YourCustomers: Ya can’t win if you don’t show up.  @YourCustomers win with a gimme
Winner: @YourCustomers

@Bronto v. @Exxx: @Exxx wasn’t great – mostly sucking up to people but she benefitted by a weak showing from @Bronto
Winner: @Exxx

@SethMacFarlane v. @CMO_com: @CMO_com had the match won until they decided to repost their tweets.  That douchbaggery cost them dearly.
Winner: @SethMacFarlane

@forrester v. @DavidBThomas: Beating the likes of @forrester is hard enough, but tweeting only once during the match pretty much seals your fate.  Follow @DavidBThomas anyway.  A really good guy.
Winner: @forrester

@avinash v. @1918: @avinash is…well…@avinash. @1918 is..well…@1918.  Tough draw for the local guy.
Winner: @avinash

@SocialMedia411 v. @Hitwise_US: @SocialMedia is absolutely dominant right now and maybe the best tweeter left in the tourney.  Fear the @SocialMedia411!
Winner: @SocialMedia411

Congratulations to the winners and welcome to the Sweet Sixteen!  As for the losers? Its back to campus for you ham ‘n eggers.
