Imagine a world without social media. Actually we can, because we were around before it kicked into high gear. It’s now a part of everyday life, and a great way to promote both good and bad. Black Panther is good, and Twitter users agree, with it becoming the most mentioned movie on the platform.
Many will likely guess what the Marvel movie has kicked into second place… Yes, Star Wars – or, to be more precise, The Force Awakens. Meanwhile, in third, George Lucas’ space thing gets another slice of the birdie pie with The Last Jedi.
The impressive figure was announced by Twitter themselves. So, what does it take to become the movie world’s most tweeted about? Over 35 million tweets. Whoa!
Black Panther has had some very high profile supporters, too, with Michelle Obama offering a glowing endorsement…
Congrats to the entire #blackpanther team! Because of you, young people will finally see superheroes that look like them on the big screen. I loved this movie and I know it will inspire people of all backgrounds to dig deep and find the courage to be heroes of their own stories.
