    Great find Dave, and a nice plug for an event that already happened 🙂

    The stats are pretty mind-blowing, 40 million people Rickrolled – what an opportunity for Astley to have launched an EP or remixes.

    One stat is a bit fuzzy, Dell makes $3m off Twitter. I’m calling BS on this. I read the times article, it only adds up to $2m, and there is no hard data even behind this. A million from folks clicking on coupons, which I would say is from people already about to buy, and joining Twitter to get the discount. And a million from people users who clicked on Dell Twitter to Dell Outlet. Dell had $61000m sales in 08, with 2/3 of a million Twitter followers – this is an absolutely terrible ROI. Show me a real company that has monetised Twitter – with real dollars that actually meant something.
