How did Twitter fare as an Oscars predictor?

Before the awards ceremony yesterday, @wtdesignlab┬áposted a great infographic visualizing the 2012 Oscars predictions based on Twitter activity. So how did Twitter do as a prognosticator? Twitterers correctly predicted two out of four of the winners in the top four categories: Best Picture, Best Actress, Best Actor, and Best Director.

Of course, if you would have liked your movie listed on this poster, maybe you need some Twitter assistance. Call us.
