After November, Tiger Woods first broke his silence in public this Friday Morning. He apologized in a press conference. All the major TV channels and some internet video streamers showed this conference live. The press conference has integrated a lot of interests among the people. According to Mashable, about 683,000 viewers watched the press conference live on Ustream and 93,000 tweets have been recorded about the press conference in the first hour.
Livestream, Hulu, and YouTube also streamed this press conference. YouTube promoted it on its homepage and widely followed Twitter account.
We thought the event might be huge given the interest in the Woods scandal and the fact the event took place during the U.S. work day, and the numbers from Ustream indicate that the statement was likely watched online by millions in total.
Ustream added that its social stream integration — which lets users post messages to Twitter, Facebook and MySpace while watching live video — contributed 3,300 updates to the chatter. In total, Trendrr tells us there were 93,000 tweets about the press conference in the first hour.
