Last August I was struck by how many comments Tara Hunt got when she took a picture of herself in her Failwhale T-Shirt. That was 2008 when twitter was for geeks.
Now it's 2009 and on a quiet March evening in London Imogen Heap who is best known for "Let Go"did the same thing with 3x times as many comments in a short period of time. I'm also pretty sure that very few of her 57,939 followers are considered 'in the tech industry'. She racked up 7,982 views to her Twitpic page, which means that 7,982 people clicked from seeing Imogen Heap tweet that she uploaded a picture. And then 23 people could not help but comment about her and the Failwhale she was wearing.
Facebook is making products talk too - I enabled Netflix with Facebook connect today, rated one movie, Midnight Run from 1988 and already I've had 3 comments in 1/2 hour
Here are all Imogen's comments from Twitpic
