The game and the half time show featuring the Seahawks and the Broncos beat last year’s 24.1 million tweets sent last year.

Meanwhile, an 87-yard kickoff return by Percy Harvin, which resulted in a touch-down at the opening of the 3rd quarter, saw traffic peak at 381,605 tweets per minute.

Harvin was also the most mentioned player during the game on Twitter.
