Super Bowl XLVI is America’s most tweeted sporting event to dateSo the Giants are celebrating right now with their Championship rings, and for those who have not yet gotten enough about the Super Bowl, here is a little bit of trivia that you can memorize to impress your grandkids when you are all wrinkled up down the road. What does technology have to do with Super Bowl XLVI? Well, for starters, it is America’s most tweeted sporting event to date, where an average of 10,000 tweets per second were sent flying, according to Twitter (who else better than them to certify this?) This average happened in the final three minutes of the Super Bowl that happened tonight, and you can more or less expect this record to be broken many times over down the road as the Twitter phenomenon continues its growth this year and beyond. If one were to follow a similar, logical route, then the US election next year will also be the most tweeted about. The highest tweets per second occurred at the end of the game, hitting 12,333, while Madonna’s performance generated 10,245, placing it at second place.
