A lot of people watched last night’s episode of Game of Thrones, wherein the living fought and the dead and the hero Arya Stark killed the Night King. We won’t know the exact numbers until tomorrow, but according to Entertainment Weekly, it’s already reached one important milestone: it’s the most tweeted-about episode in the history of scripted TV.
Is that a mark of pride? Of shame? However you think of it, the episode was tweeted about 7.8 million tweets over the course of its 82-minute runtime. That’s the longest episode in the history of the show, by the way, which surely helped.
The most tweeted-about characters were Arya Stark (obviously), the Night King (yeah), Bran (do something, Bran!), Jon Snow (because of the expectation), and Cersei Lannister (wait, what?)
Seriously, why were people tweeting about Cersei?
In any case, here’s what you came for: all the tweets!
Prediction for rankings: the entire rankings.
