The series finale drew Breaking Bad’s highest viewership ever – and the buzz on Twitter was correspondingly active.
The Breaking Bad finale episode generated a massive 1.24 million tweets, inclusive of the U.S. East Coast and West Coast airings as well as the three-hour periods before and after those respective broadcasts.
That said, Pretty Little Liars, which currently holds the title of Most Tweeted Show Ever, generated 1.9 million tweets during last season’s finale.
Much of the Breaking Bad conversation on Twitter was generated from cast members’ and writers’ tweets about their thoughts surrounding the conclusion of one of the most important shows in television history.
Jesse, I love you and you will always be a part of me. Thanks for the memories. Your friend, Aaron
