Most viewed US television program ever, Super Bowl 46, saw 13.7M related tweets

Not only was Sunday’s Super Bowl the most viewed sporting event ever on television, it was the most viewed television program ever with a whopping 111.3M viewers. That’s pretty impressive alone, and the game has the tweets to go along with it.

This one’s different, trust us. Our new event for New York is focused on quality, not quantity.

The crazy part is that those 13.7M tweets were just from during the game alone. Imagine if the company had released how many Super Bowl related tweets there were since the two teams competing in it were known.
