Anyone sick of the Tebow hype? Too bad for you. It’s only getting BIGGER.
Following last night’s “heroics,” I tweeted the following trying to be one of those totally predictable wannabe-witty Twitter people:
Well, turns out there was some fact based in that opinion. According to the netizens at Mashable, Tebow not only helped put the Steelers away, but he also climbed into the Twitter record books.
Twitter reaction to Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow’s 80-yard overtime touchdown pass Sunday night reached 9,420 tweets per second, placing the event in the number two spot on Twitter’s most-tweets-per-second list.
Tebow’s 15 yard-pass, that turned into an 80-yard game-winning reception to Demaryius Thomas, is now the most “celebrated” sports play of the Twitter generation. Take that Hope Solo. Swallow that, America. I don’t know what it means, but perhaps 2012 is the year of Armageddon after all.
