In 2007, South By Southwest gave Twitter the perfect self-contained and tech-savvy biosphere in which to become the must-have app to communicate with friends and keep abreast of the events on the ground. The event would become a turning point for the company, hastening its use across a key segment of influential techies. Nine years after its founding, the company is now -- as we're all aware -- so successful that its stats on the event's most-tweeted provides a comprehensive accounting the week's biggest takeaways.
From March 17-23, the company reports over one million tweets about SXSW and SXSW Music as being posted.
Twitter counts among the fest's most high-profile moments the appearance of Miley Cyrus (which ratcheted her onto the most-tweeted artist list, below), Earl Sweatshirt's performance at Pandora's Discovery Den, Raekwon's cameo during Ghostface Killah's set at the Fader Fort and an onstage scuffle involving Run The Jewels (which contributed to their being one of the week's most-tweeted "emerging" artists, also below).
