Don’t mess with ‘Pretty Little Liars’ fans when it comes to tweeting about the hit ABC Family series created by the talented I. Marlene King.
Last night, the ‘PLL’ winter debut became the most tweeted season premiere in TV history! That’s right, numbers don’t lie (unlike everyone on the show). More than 1.3 million tweets by almost 700,000 contributors were generated. If that seems like nothing special, how about this.
Fans of the series, starring Lucy Hale (Aria), Troian Bellisario (Spencer), Ashley Benson (Hanna) and Shay Mitchell (Emily), put out 30,000 tweets per minute -- per minute! ‘Liars’ is now one of the Top 5 most-tweeted TV series, and eight of its episodes have produced more than 1 million tweets.
I have a feeling “A” would be proud of his/her loyal followers using technology in such a smart way.
If that isn’t exciting enough, the series revolving around four friends, their former BFF’s “death,” fabulous fashion, and, of course, beautiful men, ranked as Tuesday’s No. 1 telecast among women 18-34 (900,000), viewers 12-34 (2.1 million) and females 12-34 (1.8 million).
These numbers make sense, especially since fans tuned in to see if Ezra (Ian Harding) is really “A” and to see how the Liars are handling the bombshell that their presumed dead friend Ali (Sasha Pieterse) is actually alive and kicking!
The rest of the season is sure to bring even more mysteries, lies and tweets.
‘Pretty Little Liars’ airs Tuesdays at 8/7c on ABC Family.
