Twitter pronounced “Black Panther” today, as the most-tweeted about movie of all time. The movie, which stars Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. jordan, Lupita Nyongo and directed by Ryan Coogler, has been tweeted more than 35 million times.
According to the statement, “Black Panther” Twitter chatter was loud enough to topple two other box office hits that held the title from a galaxy far, far away: “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” and “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.”
In January, Kendrick Lamar fired off what is now the most-retweeted “Black Panther” tweet ever when he posted to Twitter the track list to the film’s soundtrack, which was curated and produced by the Grammy-winning rapper.
