The biggest Super Bowl-related peak was the second half's opening kickoff return for a touchdown which registered roughly 380,000 Tweets per minute.

The halftime show featuring Bruno Mars topped out at 230,000 Tweets per minute.

Twitter also says 58 percent of the commercials during the game featured a hashtag, up from 50 percent last year.
