Stranger Things 2 has officially broken a Twitter record. According to a report from Entertainment Weekly, Stranger Things 2 was the most-tweeted about streaming show during it’s opening weekend ever! Isn’t that crazy?

If you watched Stranger Things 2 over the opening weekend, it should be no surprise why this show is breaking Twitter records. According to the report, the show was tweeted about nearly 4 million times from Friday, Oct. 27, to Sunday, Oct. 29. The report did not include the show that held the previous record.

It’s important to note this record is only for shows made and released by streaming services. Stranger Things is Netflix’s best show, and based on this new information, it’s probably their biggest show, as well.

I think it’s clear why Stranger Things 2 broke this record, and there are number of factors involved. The way Netflix releases these seasons makes it a race to the finish in a way. Netflix has also been hyping this season since the Super Bowl. Remember, the first teaser trailer for Stranger Things 2 that aired during the Super Bowl last year?

On top of that, the cast, crew and creative minds with Stranger Things were very active on social media this weekend interacting with fans, sharing stories and talking about the show. Online, the show has built this family or community among fans, and that’s incredibly important in spreading the word and starting discussions about a great season.

Unforunately, Netflix does not release their viewership information or ratings to the public, but we have to assume this is one of the biggest opening weekends in the history of Netflix, as well. The sheer number of people talking about the show proves that.
