Bruno Mars and David Beckham among Twitter Winners on Super Bowl Night, says Searchmetrics

Study reveals minute-by-minute tweet trends on Super Bowl night

New York - February 06, 2014 - Super Bowl half time performer, Bruno Mars, generated more tweets per minute during the event than the other live act, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and he also beat rock band, U2, which premiered its new single in a half time commercial, according to a new analysis of Twitter activity.

Former Soccer star David Beckham and Terry Crews, the former NFL star and actor, also generated a high number of tweets per minute when they appeared in commercials during Super Bowl.

The findings come from digital marketing software and services company, Searchmetrics, which analyzed tweets-per-minute activity around a variety of topics during Super Bowl night.

"Twitter's data shows there were more than 24.9 million tweets about the game and halftime show on Sunday. Many advertisers invest millions of dollars on commercials and sponsorship during the event and our analysis gives a snapshot of the excitement generated on Twitter on the night," said Marcus Tober, CTO and founder of Searchmetrics, whose Enterprise SEO platform helps digital marketers track and measure their search and social media marketing activity.

About the study
Searchmetrics defined approximately 50 keywords/topics around the Super Bowl. The company's software then crawled Twitter to analyze how many times per minutes the specific words were mentioned within tweets. The company does not have full access to all of Twitter's data, so the numbers are based on a sub set of data giving an indication of trends but not absolute numbers.
