Subject: No sweetheart I wasn’t late to the game. I was there. Jackson died in ‘09. Instagram started in late 2010.

Twitter stats were 2.5M/day average in ‘09 and over 500M/day currently.

The Jackson story was big but on the scale of social media - by virtue of the fact of relative size comparing 2020 to 2009, it was simply not possible for Jackson to have more coverage.

Now if you want to go down the path of media, ESPN and TNT owned the coverage along with many networks. Want to talk about the evolution of sports coverage in this country? Jackson still has the Ped issue. He was trying to make a comeback after all that. Yes he was popular but way more baggage. That put a blanket on what could have been. Guessing you don’t remember that.

Btw, social media Stats are easily researched.
