Last night, a grand total of 1,269,970 Oscar-related tweets were sent out, with 388,717 different users tweeting!
The most popular tweets were of course those from The Academy themselves, but The Onion was also extremely popular last night for the following tweet:
How rude — not a single character from Toy Story 3 bothered to show up. #oscars
Ha! James Franco was also quite popular last night, among many others.
While Twitter was a big deal last night, numbers were actually not as intense as they were during the Super Bowl and the Grammys.
Here's what TweetReach CEO Jenn Davis had to say about it:
“We were prepared for big spikes, and we just didn’t see those.”
Huh. 1,269,970 Oscar tweets seems pret-ty impressive to us. Numbers probably would have been even HIGHER if the show itself were a bit more exciting.
Were U tweeting during the Oscars last night?
