I bet Atlanta is higher because of the social media buzz aspect of this - I notice on Twitter how many people tweet about ATL rap

Yawns at the embarrassingly juvenile descriptions for the cities.

8 San Francisco
The City by the Bay has it all – shopping, jobs,
great transport and buzz. If only it didn't rain
quite so much, San Francisco might be able to
take on the really big guns
Heffaplease. We're in a drought and even in normal years we'll go from May to October with barely a drop so **** u jealous brits.

Our mediterranean climate puts London and Paris and New York to shame. Think of something else.

They even said that MARTA is what gives Atlanta's "brand" a boost. I'm sorry, but that is just ridiculous. I agree Atlanta has a huge global brand, but it has nothing to do with MARTA.
Yeah, that made no sense whatsoever. Atlanta gets a boost from MARTA, but apparently Tokyo, Hong Kong and Shanghai get no boost from their world class infrastructure that makes Atlanta look like a provincial cow town.

To be honest, that crossed my mind as well. Real Housewives of Atlanta, maybe?

Japan is clearly not pumping out enough hybrid cars, anime, Playstations and Godzilla movies. Even Bangalore has a stronger brand than Tokyo.

Anybody notice Miami didn't even make the list?

I can see why Atlanta has a higher ranking. It seems like every new show on TV is centered in Atlanta. The Bravo Network and VH1 have about three shows on Atlanta running concurrently. Real Housewives, The New Atlanta, and a new show about Atlanta's party scene.

You mean people don't Tweet about Will Smith's Miami song? This is the ultimate branding.


Will Smith - Miami - YouTube

I just peeped that Eva Mendes was in this video.

Yeah but this is supposed to be global. I would be surprised (and very disappointed) if these shows get world-wide syndication.

How global is Twitter though? Facebook, yes, but has the entire globe taken to Twitter?
