You’re wrong, Techcrunch!

Suck it, Arrrrrington, you just got owned by Tynt Insight. They’re calling you out on a recent post you made, citing Gigya numbers that place Facebook as the largest single source of sharing traffic online. But these people at Tynt say that you were wrong! Boom!

The fundamental breakdown is that the TechCrunch numbers don’t account for sharing by email, or sharing in other online areas like discussion forums, both of which are very significant.

How does that make you feel, Arrington? It feels like defeat to me. Time to fire Sarah Lacy, MG Siegler, and all those interns, and shutter the site.

Oh, god, this is so amazing. I need a cigarette.

    Email isn’t even part of the Web. Email predates the Web. So what that some folks read their email through Web-based clients. The actual email is not.
