Denver Broncos QB Tim Tebow Sets “Sports Tweets Per Minute” Record
In yesterday’s incredible 29-23 upset victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers, you may have noticed that Twitter was loading slowly.
You can thank Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow for that.
Tweets mentioning Tim Tebow were coming in at a rate of 9420 per second, which shattered the previous record for tweets per second in a sporting event. The old record of 7196 tweets per second occurred during the women’s World Cup final.
By comparison, the 9420 tweets per second mentioning Tebow almost doubles the 5106 per second during the Osama bin Laden raid. It crushes the 6049 per second during Steve Jobs’ death. It’s more than twice as many as the beginning of last year’s Super Bowl between the Packers and the Steelers.
I think it’s pretty safe to say that if Tim Tebow is able to lead the Denver Broncos into the Super Bowl, Twitter will set an all-time record, potentially for years to come.
