With One Direction, Taylor Swift and and Justin Timberlake claiming trophies during Sunday's broadcast of the "American Music Awards," it's no surprise that the show claimed the week's top award on Twitter.

The show was the most tweeted about event on TV last week, generating more than 7 million comments seen by more than 10 million Twitter users, according to Nielsen's SocialGuide rankings. The awards show embraced social media, allowing viewers to watch the digital preshow on ABC.com, Yahoo and other streaming sites. Winners also were determined by online voting.

NBC's singing competition, "The Voice," played runner-up in the Twitter TV sweepstakes, generating nearly 800,000 tweets that reached nearly 4 million Twitter users.
