Sherlock - Season 3 Finale Breaks Twitter Record

The Sherlock finale generated a whopping 377,182 tweets, beating the record previously set by The Empty Hearse and making it the highest tweeted volume for a single episode of a drama series in the UK (second overall only to the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary adventure, which is counted as a special). Furthermore, it is also the episode with the second highest tweet volume of 2014 so far, 100k Tweets behind the launch episode of Celebrity Big Brother.

The peak minute of His Last Vow came a minute after the episode ended, hitting a spectacular 10,592 tweets per minute as the hashtags #didyoumissme and #MoriartyLives began to trend. The episode averaged at 1,727 tweets per minute, up on The Sign of Three’s average but not managing to beat The Empty Hearse. There were also a fair few peak minutes in the episode. The opening minute saw 3,339 tweets per minute, while the revelation of Sherlock having a girlfriend saw a peak of 3,131 tweets per minute. The moments around the near fatal shooting of Sherlock saw a peak of 3,548 tweets per minute, the highest of the episode before the final minutes. The most RT’d tweet of the evening once again came from the official BBC1 account, with 5,521 retweets of “Did you miss me?” It seems like Twitter certainly did miss Moriarty, as his shocking reappearance generated a staggering 74,447 mentions of the character and the actor Andrew Scott.

The ending of the episode caused a Twitter frenzy, as people began to tweet their thoughts. There are few shows that achieve what Sherlock has managed to do as a substantial amount of tweets were sent after the episode ended. 188,328 tweets were sent in the 30 minutes after the episode, just under half of the entire total generated.

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
