‘Black Panther’ Is the Most Tweeted About Movie in History
According to Twitter (and I guess they would know), Black Panther is officially the most-tweeted about movie in history. With “more than 35 million tweets,” it’s now far surpassed the number two movie of all time on Twitter, Air Bud: Golden Receiver.
(Okay, I made that up. But people and Russian bots love the Air Bud Cinematic Universe, so it’s definitely possible. At the very least, it’s got to be in the top 10.)
If you’re curious, the other top two movies in terms of tweet volume in 2018 are Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Avengers: Infinity War. (Disney pretty much owns Twitter conversation about film at this point.) And the most tweeted about characters were Black Panther (duh), Killmonger, and Shuri. (Okoye though!)
