Apple events and buzz surrounding them is surely phenomenal. Tweets about iPhone 5 on Sept. 12 were up 460 percent compared to tweets about the iPhone 4S, which was announced in October 2011. Gene Munster of Piper Jaffray says,

“The sentiment around iPhone 5 was significantly better than that of the iPhone 4S. Based on the same study by Investing Analytics, we believe that 73% of tweets about the iPhone 5 during launch day were positive compared to 51% for the iPhone 4S launch. We believe this is to be expected given the phone is redesigned while the iPhone 4S was not.”
