Most Popular Literary Tweet of 2012

 

Out of all the tweets we featured last year, one Twitter post was more popular than all the others.

In February 2012, the Professor Snape Twitter feed (a parody account dedicated to the famous Harry Potter character) published the most popular tweet of the Academy Awards, according to our sibling blog Social Times. We’ve embedded the most popular tweet above–do you agree? His tweet stood out of more than two million Twitter posts about the awards show.

Check it out: “While Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part 2 failed to win any of the three awards for which it was nominated, Professor Snape’s remark … triggered an impressive 6,346 retweets. Overall, the Professor Snape parody account received 10,544 retweets from the posts he made during the night, good enough for second place behind @theacademy, the official Academy Awards Twitter profile.”
