ReadWriteWeb, of course. But today both Google and Twitter announced their versions - the year in search and the year in Tweets.It's that time of year once again for the litany of year-end reviews. We're writing our own here at
Google's Zeitgeist 2010 is based on an aggregation of the searches billions of searches from across the world. Top global events included the World Cup, the Haiti earthquake, and the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. The fastest rising searches included folks looking for more information about Chatroulette, the iPad, and Justin Bieber. Fastest falling (it has to be someone) included New Moon, swine flu, and Susan Boyle.
Google has created an HTML5 visualization of the searches, so you can see where and what folks were interested in, as well as compare different searches - how World Cup inquiries in the U.S. stacked up with volcanic ash inquiries in Iceland, for example.
Twitter has also unveiled its Year In Review, although much of it is still "coming soon." Today's peek into Twitter 2010 looks at a few of the 100 million new members Twitter has acquired this year, including notables like Hugo Chavez, Cher, and the Dalai Lama.
