Super Bowl has come and gone and now there's a 12-month wait until the next one. This year, social networking would've been a huge influence on the sporting match, and oh boy was it a big year for Twitter at Super Bowl 2012.

Twitter reaction reached an astounding 12,233 tweets per second at the end of the Giants vs. Patriots game, and 10,245 tweets per second during Madonna's halftime performance. These numbers catapult the moments at numbers two and three on Twitters most-tweets-per-second list. The first? Japanese anime movie Castle in the Sky, which had a crazy 25,088 tweets per second.

 

Now for some questions! What did you think of the game? What of the advertisements during the game? Madonna's halftime performance? Were you tweeting during the game?
