Its like watching the game with 162.9 million of your friends. Twitter graphs its usage over the course of the 2011 Super Bowl.
The big event had its own Twitter record, too. If you tweeted at 10:07:16pm EST, you helped set a new Twitter record: during the final moments of the game, fans sent 4,064 Tweets per second (TPS) – the highest TPS for any sporting event. That spike shattered the previous record in the sporting world: the 3,283 TPS sent during Japan’s 3-1 victory over Denmark during last summer’s World Cup.
That’s pretty great, but who is reading all those tweets? Its almost like measuring the water usage in the Olympics.
