CHART OF THE DAY: More Evidence That Twitter Is Disconnected From The Mainstream

However, it is still not a mainstream service.

This chart from the Wall Street Journal shows the disconnect between mainstream folks and Twitter. On the left, we have the most popular TV shows, according to Nielsen. On the right, we have the most tweeted about shows.
