While billionaire Donald Trump is surging in the polls as the front-runner for the Republican nomination for president, he's surfing a tsunami on the Internet.

The term "Trump" has racked up more than 3.3 million tweets in the past month with about 100,000 just in the 24 hours ending Tuesday afternoon, according to Topsy, a website that tracks social media mentions. Republican Jeb Bush, meanwhile, has only had 27,000 during the same period and 727,000 in the past month.
