If there’s one thing that “Twilight” and “True Blood” fans can both agree upon, it’s that vampires don’t suck — well, they do literally suck, but… ah, you get the point.
No matter which one you’re a fan of, both bloodthirsty franchises have strong support from their viewers. In a lot of cases, those viewers are active in the social media circuits like Twitter and Facebook. And while neither “Twilight” nor “True Blood” tends to edge the other out too badly in terms of online mentions, something very odd occurred to the contrary just last week.OneRiot has compiled an interesting chart that details the amount of mentions that “Twilight” and “True Blood” each receive in the social media circuit — and while they’re usually neck and neck, “True Blood” soared past “Twilight” on June 15, 2009, dwarfing the likes of Edward and Bella by eight times the normal amount of mentions.

Like a vampire rising from the dead for the first time, the numbers for “True Blood” spiked on the evening of June 14, the same night that the Southern vampire drama premiered its second season on HBO. The premiere, which yielded almost four million viewers, remained a hot topic throughout the remainder of the next day.

What does this mean? For starters, it means that Edward and Bella fell victim to Bill and Sookie — for one night, at least.

But my real hunch? Check those numbers out again when “New Moon” comes out later this year. I got a sneaking suspicion that even the sleaziest of Bon Tempe’s residents won’t be on vampire fandom’s mind when the cameras focus on the Cullen family again.

That's so true. As a fan of both Twilight and True Blood, I will say that the numbers will be very different later on in the year simply because one is a very much anticipated movie. I don't really take sides as to which is the best because both are very different. I believe Twilight saga won't get to a big sex part because a lot of the fans are young girls. True Blood on the other hand is sexy and a lot more deep. I just hope New Moon gets amazing reviews and True Blood keeps up with the ratings :)

There us no comparation possible. I love both. They are very very different, despite calling 'True Blood' Twilight for adults... I agree with you Brianna. Is like apples to oranges.
