"Hurt Locker" Twitter Favorite for Top Oscar

Take this for what it's worth, Oscar speech followers: An analysis of Twitter traffic by communications firm Waggener Edstrom predicts that "The Hurt Locker" will take Best Picture.

"In a year where the best picture category has swelled, most of the dialogue has centered around two films. The buzz created the perfect opportunity for us to utilize our own tool, WE twendz pro service, to evaluate not only what the Twitter community is predicting, but who might be influencing that general sentiment," said Karla Wachter, senior vice president, product development, at Waggener Edstrom. "We identified a clear leader for best picture, and determined that Roger Ebert, one of the foremost respected film critics, is leading the discussion — proof that influence can and is crossing media channels and mediums."

What does it say that the top tech adapters are turning against the most technologically sophisticated film of all time?
