As noted, Nielsen recently confirmed to us that they have changed the way Twitter ratings are being released as Unique Audience will no longer be included. The weekly lists will now include and be ranked by tweet volume. SmackDown had 40,000 tweets with 15,000 unique authors. This down from the May 26th episode, which had 41,000 tweets and 12,000 authors.
