    The top tweets had nothing to do with football!!!

    During the big game last night there were 24.1 million Tweets during the Baltimore Ravens’ victory over the San Francisco 49ers. Two events triggered the most Tweets per minute during the NFL title game: Beyoncé’s halftime show and the partial blackout that knocked out lights at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

    Beyoncé’s performance generated 268,000 Tweets per minute, followed by the reunion of Destiny’s Child (257,500) and the trio’s performance of Beyoncé hit Single Ladies (252,500).

    And of course the power outage during the third quarter had the fourth-most Tweets per minute at 231,500. The most discussed play of the game was Ravens wide receiver Jacoby Jones’ 108-yard kickoff return for a touchdown, which spurred more than 181,000 Tweets per minute.
