Lots of people were watching Super Bowl XLVI -- in fact, more than any other Super Bowl ever -- and so too, lots of sports fans were generating buzz with authentic discussion by Tweeting about the Super Bowl.
In the final three minutes of the Super Bowl tonight, there were an average of 10,000 Tweets per second.— Twitter (@twitter) February 6, 2012
Oh, and since the highest-rated part of a football game was when a 53-year old woman was singing, it would make sense that there were a ton of Tweets about Madonna, too.
Madonna's performance during the Super Bowl's halftime show saw an average of 8,000 Tweets per second for five minutes.— Twitter (@twitter) February 6, 2012
The highest Tweets per second #SuperBowl peak came at the end of the game: 12,233. 2nd highest was during Madonna's performance: 10,245.— Twitter (@twitter) February 6, 2012
