Did you watch Spain thrash Italy 4-0 in the final of Euro 2012? Well, you’re not alone, of course – an estimated 250 million people from around the world tuned in to watch the game, and this army of football fans helped to trigger a new sporting tweets per second (TPS) record on Twitter.
Back in August, Beyoncé Knowles’ pregnancy announcement at the MTV Video Music Awards set a record on Twitter, with a very impressive 8,868 tweets per second (TPS).
And as part of their #YearInReview series, Twitter published a list of all the major events on Twitter in 2011, with the typical entry generating a mark of somewhere between five and seven thousand TPS.
Now, we have a new benchmark on Twitter. It happened in Japan, triggered an unbelievable 25,088 tweets per second, and took place during a television screening of an animated movie… from 1986.
