Turn on the lights: Super Bowl XLVII top tweets during the blackout
Despite a 22 point lead and a 34-minute delay in the third quarter, Super Bowl XLVII was the most watched sporting event of the year. One of the most bizarre scenes energized Colin Kaepernick and the San Francisco 49ers, but also energized Twitter.
Twitter said the volume spiked during the blackout reaching 231,500 tweets per minute. In total, there were 24.1 million tweets posted about the Super Bowl and Beyonce, said Twitter in a blog post. In comparison, by the beginning of the second half, Twitter said its volume of tweets had already surpassed last year’s total for the whole game.
Watching the twitter feed was more entertaining than watching everyone sit around. Just in case you missed it here are the top tweets during the Super Bowl blackout.
