I found this image on a dormant Posterous blog owned by BackType co-founder Mark Montano. Prior to acquisition by Twitter on 5 July 2011, BackType was a social media marketing company funded by Y Combinator, among others. I miss BackType. I liked the interface and even used the API.

Mark Montano posted the photo above without a caption or any remarks. That doesn’t really matter though. I think it captures trending sentiment quite well.
