CNN Hits Record Traffic on Election Day

Like I said as well as many others did too, this election belongs to the YouTube Generation. This election leveraged the internet so much that more people were better informed and younger people were encouraged to vote.

Naturally, America’s most trusted news site hit record traffic today. CNN emailed TechCrunch the details. Twenty-seven million unique visitors and 276 million page views, both about 5 times their normal daily traffic.

These numbers are amazing and still does not include the the rest of the millions that tuned into CNN’s coverage on the television which featured a magic wall and a hologram.
