Technically, this weekend’s Super Bowl (#SB48) broke the Twitter record but not by much. Tweeters sent 24.9 million messages about the game or the half-time show during the three and half hour telecast.
Even though the game wasn’t as exciting as last year’s, there were still a few stand-out, exceptionally Tweetable moments.
