Hark, the world's only sound bite platform, announced today the Top-10
list of its 'most listened to' sound bites from the 2012 presidential
inauguration event, held this morning in Washington D.C. The list was
compiled after Hark evaluated social media trends and the amount of
listens each sound bite attained during the first two hours of its
appearance on the Hark website. Contenders for the Top-10 were chosen
from Hark's collection of sound bites from the event, which were clipped
live and in real-time by Hark's clipping team.
"The Presidential election produced some dramatic moments and this
inaugural speech reflected that drama, producing powerful sound bites
that dominated Twitter most of the morning," said Hark CEO David
Aronchick. "As the world's only sound bite platform, we are proud that
our content on Hark can help tell the story of the democratic process in
a more informative and entertaining manner."
