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?

Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
