Palm Pre Tops Twitter Trending Topics for 2009

Twitter announced the top trending terms for 2009, broken out by category. In the technology area, the Palm Pre was #6. Even more impressive, the Palm Pre was the only consumer electronics product in the group. Others included Snow Leopard, Google Wave, Windows 7 and other software products. Clearly, the buzz from CES 2009 helped to propel the Palm Pre to the tops in technology. Palm as a company has had a presence on Twitter, allowing customers to interact with the company, a move that certainly had a positive impact on their relationship with customers.
