iPad Beats State Of The Union, But Chimp Film Trumps Them Both

The rollout of Apple's new iPad was the No. 1 topic on Twitter, generating 18% of the news links from January 25-29, according to the Pew Research Center's Project for Excellence in Journalism.

The iPad was also the fifth-biggest topic on blogs (7% of the links) in a week when the No. 1 story in the blogosphere (23%) was the BBC airing of the first-ever film shot entirely by chimpanzees.
