Screening Of Japanese Movie sets new Tweets per sec. record

According to Twitter's Twitter account

On Dec 9, the television screening in Japan of Hayao Miyazaki’s “Castle in the Sky” led to 25,088 Tweets per second - a new Twitter record.

More useless facts at the Twitter Year in Review site

I didn't see that mentioned anywhere on the "Year in Review" site, or on their @twitter page. I did see it mentioned on @twittercomms though, as well as on several third-party sites.

I do find this factoid a little bit odd, though; both that the TV showing of a 25-year old anime film that everybody in Japan has already seen, sets a tweet-per-second record, and that the record that is set is about triple the previous record. This would be akin to a TV showing of "Back to the Future" setting a tweet-per-second record.
