The Twitter Buzz is In: Viewers Loved “Teenage Paparazzo”

by Steve Broback on September 29, 2010

HBO premiered Adrian Grenier’s documentary Teenage Paparazzo last night. We were lucky enough to see Adrian last week in San Francisco and assisted in hosting a special screening of the film.

Adrian had also discussed the movie while at our Tweet House in Park City during Sundance earlier this year, so were very interested to see if the buzz at large matched our perceptions.

In a nutshell, it did. We thought is was an awesome film, and the tweets seem to agree.

Before, during, and after the premiere, we downloaded well over 4,000 tweets that referred to the film, and did semantic analysis in order to isolate only the tweets that came from people who had actually seen the documentary. These were then analyzed for frequency of word/term usage. Below is a graphical representation of the results.

“Old” referred to the 13-14 year old star of the film. “Sad” referred to society’s penchant to chase celebrity.

My guess (and hope) is that we’ll be seeing more films coming from Mr. Grenier — ones with him behind the camera…
