AT&T and Apple iPhone get top spots on Twitter tech trends for 2012
Twitter has released its huge Year of Tweets roundup for 2012, giving us a look at what happened throughout the year through our own retweets and favorites. And while Barack Obama’s Election and the Summer Olympics (wow, that seems like forever ago), were among the most discussed topics, we were curious to see what kind of devices there were most tweets about.

And it was no huge surprise to see that Apple’s iPhone, iPad and the company itself were among the most talked about. What was a bit more surprising is that actually AT&T came up first as the top tech trend of the year.

With the company’s attempt to buy T-Mobile in what could have become the biggest deal the industry has seen, that is hardly a surprise, but we wonder whether those tweets mentioning the nation’s second larger carrier were positive or negative ones.

On Twitter, Skype also was hugely discussed and so was the Kindle tablet and its maker, Amazon. Check out the full list of Twitter’s 2012 top tech trends below, and don’t hesitate to hit the source below for the full Year of Tweets round-up.

Droiders do not care about trends - iphone is all about fashion and trends and not tech....

Networkdood c'mon bro... This site is littered with apple bashing droiders, I make one little joke on an article that has apple leading something and look at the backlash. I never see wp8 users, and only a few iOS users act the way droiders do. It was a joke dude chill out man. I'll never joke about your precious android platform, or users again...that was a joke too

As a long time tech enthusiast, I doubt the majority of At&t twitters were positive.

Well, they love their iphone and I read that more people prefer the iphone on AT&T's network, but they hate the network - iphoners sure are awesome and intelligent people.

I have a twitter account and the only thing stopping me from canceling is that when you play games like the Hobbit, the software company runs a deal where if you tweet about it, you get some game stuff. Or, take Flixster, they will give free movies from time to time when you tweet about them. Seriously, who wants to tweet every frigging step of their life?
