A new study says otherwise–at least in the realm of social media.
According to researchers at Indiana University, Seattle is the source of more trending topics on Twitter than any other U.S. city.
Take, for example, #ICanAdmit. This ”hashtag” is used when tweeting something confessional. First popularized in Seattle, it went on to trend globally.
Or how about #YouWillNotBeTakenSeriouslyIf? Used when calling out foolishness in others, it too is a Seattle gift to the Twittersphere.
