Game of Thrones season 8: the episode beats a record of tweets and dethrones episode 1
In the year 2019, Game of Thrones has already been the subject of 52 million tweets, which is enormous. Some of the most talked about characters on Twitter include, of course, Arya, the King of the Night, Bran, Jon Snow and Cersei. As a reminder, episode 3 of Game of Thrones season 8 already broke the record for the largest battle scene in TV history.
Episode 3 therefore largely supersedes the first episode of this season 8. Within 24 hours of its release on April 14, 2019, it had generated more than 5 million tweets. Will the series break its new record in the coming weeks? For the record, Episode 4 will air on HBO on May 19 and will last up to 78 minutes, 11 minutes longer than the previous episode.
This is not the first time that the series inspired by the work of George R. R. Martin has unleashed passions on Twitter. In 2017, Game of Thrones was voted the most tweeted series on the social network just ahead of Stranger Things and far ahead of The Walking Dead
