5 Social Media News Stories You Need to Read This Week
By Yasmin PierreSep 29
The penultimate episode of Game of Thrones (EVER) left us all on the edge of our seats.
There were big moments, big gasps, and (dare I say before the spoiler warning?) big deaths.
Here, we’ll take you through the online reactions to Game of Thrones Season 8, Episode 5, entitled ‘The Bells’.
We’re going to reveal spikes in conversation and the top characters being mentioned. You’ll have to scroll across to see what causes mention spikes, but please be aware there are spoilers in there.
Our advice? If you’ve not watched the episode yet, come back and read this later.
During the time the show was aired live:
Episode five comes just behind episodes three and one in terms of Twitter mentions during the show.
We saw the biggest spikes in conversation occurring towards the end of the action packed episode, but just take a look at those mention volumes – at no point do we go below 2k mentions in a single minute.
It’s no spoiler to say that Arya Stark has been queen of the season so far, and she’s consistently been the top mentioned character.
That changed this week.
