Cool your thumbs, people! Wow!
Madonna's halftime show produced a staggering amount of tweets. How many, you ask?
Try 10,245 tweets PER SECOND. It was one of the busiest times Twitter has ever had, and averaged 8,000 TPS for five minutes!
Less than a third of them happened to be negative, too! 59% of them were positive, and 11% were neutral, begging the question as to who is counting all of this, and what are the definitions of "negative" "neutral" and "positive."
The actual TPS came at the end of the game (12,233), however, which would be expected. It was up by 200% from last year's Super Bowl!
So what did that halftime show actually beat? Well, everything:
'The 2011 MTV Music Awards - one of the most social TV events ever - had a peak TPS of 8,868, according to a Twitter recap of top 2011 events. Steve Jobs' resignation had a peak TPS of 7,064 while his death had a peak of 6,049. The BET Awards in June had a high TPS of 6,436.'
The good news just keeps rolling in! We're so happy for you!
It's no wonder the TPS was so high — and we gotta give props to Twitter for being able to handle it all!
