Miyazaki’s Castle in the Sky Shatters Tweets Per Second Record

Snapshot from a larger infographic featured on Silicon Republic

I saw this today and can’t help but be amazed. A ~26 year old movie managed to shatter the tweet per second record during a broadcast in Japan. Now you could say that it’s in its natural environment, but one can’t help but wonder how such an old movie managed to garner so much attention. If anything it’s proof that good films can generate discussion man years after their initial release.
