And the Most Influential Tweet of 2010 Goes to…

Co-founder of Twitter Biz Stone sat down with Matt Lauer, Meredith Vieira, and Ann Curry on “Today” show this morning to talk about the most influential tweets of 2010: including @ClarenceHouse announcing the engagement of Prince William to Miss Catherine Middleton and @bpglobalpr making fun of BP.

But the #1 most influential tweet went to “Today”‘s own @anncurry:

@usairforce find a way to let Doctors without Borders planes land in Haiti: http://bit.ly/8hYZOK THE most effective at this.

“What really made a difference was that people retweeted it,” Curry said on the show, “They really made sure that the U.S. Air Force heard it, and they in fact let planes land.”

Coming Soon: The Twitter News Network?

A Twitter TV news channel? It may not be as far fetched as it seems.

Reuters reports that Twitter co-founder Biz Stone hopes to leverage Twitter’s real-time information into launching a news network.

A Twitter news network would not necessarily be run by Twitter itself but would be in partnership with several existing news organizations, and would be open, Stone said.

“From the very beginning this has seemed almost as if it’s a news wire coming from everywhere around the world,” he told Reuters Television on the sidelines of the Silicon Valley Comes to Oxford technology event.

Arianna Huffington thinks Roger Ailes is one of the most powerful people in media

Arianna Huffington told Forbes magazine what her idea of being powerful means today:

Power today is more about influence, about changing the game, about redirecting the conversation, about altering the way we see the world and the way we live in it. And nowhere is this shift more evident than in the media.

And so the media doyenne has given her picks for the most powerful people in media. They include Comcast’s Brian Roberts and Steve Burke; Biz Stone of Twitter and Fox News founder and chairman Roger Ailes and his boss News Corp. CEO Rupert Murdoch. “Love it or leave it,” Huffington told Forbes, “There is no denying the influence of Fox News.”

During a joint appearance on ABC’s “This Week” earlier this year, Huffington went after Ailes saying that FNC host Glenn Beck, uses language that is “inciting the American people.” Ailes responded by saying Huffington was acting as “the word police.”

Rupert Murdoch Serenaded: “You Hired Glenn Beck to Ruin the Republicans”

The Wall Street Journal’s All Things D Conference is going on in Carlsband, California this week. Look for coverage from Fox Business Network’s Brian Sullivan. He’ll be interviewing Microsoft’s Steve Ballmer, Dallas mavericks owner [and Bill O'Reilly nemesis] Mark Cuban and chief Twitterers Evan Williams and Biz Stone.

CNBC is also covering today with Jim Goldman and Julia Boorstin. Interestingly, while News Corp. owns The Wall Street Journal and FBN, the WSJ continues its partnership deal with CNBC – a deal brokered before Rupert Murdoch bought Dow Jones.

And speaking of Mr. Murdoch, he was serenaded…or rather roasted… last night by singer-songwriter Jill Sobule, who wrote and performed a song called “Oh Rupert” which included the line, “You said you’ve got a secret plan / You Hired Glenn Beck to Ruin the Republicans.”
