SF Gate blogger  Zennie Abraham (Chairman and CEO of Sports Business Simulations (SBS), Editor-in-Chief of SBSON.com, and Founding Executive Producer of the national show "The Blog Report With Zennie62") says the 2010 Primetime Emmys represented a landmark for the show for its impact on Twitter and social media.

According to Abraham, "Near the end of the telecast of the 62nd Emmy Awards, personalities in it served to dominate the Twitter Top Trends. That’s never happened in Emmy Awards history. 

In fact, as of this writing, the 2010 Emmy Awards still represents seven of the ten Top Twitter Trends. From top to bottom, the Top Twitter Trends are: Temple Grandin, Hugh Laurie, Jim Parsons, Emmy Awards, #emmys10, #somewhereintheworld, Modern Family, Indiana Jones, and Jane Lynch."

Abraham adds, "According to SocialMention.com, the term Emmy Awards was mentioned on a website or blog every 15 seconds during and after the telecast. Twitscoop.com reports that as of this writing, Modern Family, the Best Comedy Series Award Winner is at the top of Twiter Trends, with 20,101 tweets devoted to it, and counting."

Furthermore, Abraham says, "

If we look over to Google Trends, the majority of hot searches concern the 2010 Emmys and people related to it. None of this could have happened were it not for a large television audience that’s already plugged into communicating about their favorite shows online using Twitter. In retrospect, because the fans of these shows converge on Twitter, Twitter has become the unofficial online nexus for the 2010 Emmy Awards."
