This is the (huge) surprise of the week. TechCrunch France feedburner account suddenly got at the highest high to close to 50k readers (until now around 8500).
I initially thought it was a bug until i started to inquire and got a conversation with Feedburner CEO that explained me that it was not an error, but just the result of Yahoo starting to “feed” FeedBurner with real number of subscribers at MyYahoo (confirmed in FeedBurner forum).
And the story is that TechCrunch France has been selected by Yahoo France as default feed in Yahoo mail RSS reader for now more than 10 months but that was not reflected until now in feedburner.
I still have a hard time to believe it, but it looks like this is a BIG news for TechCrunch France
I wrote an extensive post on that in TechCrunch france since everyone was pulling my leg with that (sorry in french only)
ps: the trends confirms today also after 2 days of showing this number.
