Social media is all over our televisions these days, whether it’s a simple hashtag or viral video advert.

TV is becoming ever more integrated with social media and this is particularly evident with Twitter, with the use of hashtags in adverts and primetime shows. But what are the most popular shows? When are they tweeted about and by whom?

TV rewind looks at all of this and more. You can get a glimpse of the facts and figures behind the tweets relating to last year’s most popular shows like Sherlock, The X Factor and Gogglebox.

Popular hashtags used

For example, did you know on 22 August 2013 over 430,000 tweets were sent out during Celebrity Big Brother’s live launch? 60% of those tweets were sent by female viewers and the show gained an average of 3,309 tweets per minute.

One of the most tweeted shows of last year was Doctor Who’s 50th anniversary special, ‘The Day of the Doctor’. It accumulated nearly 510,000 tweets over the duration of the show.
