It may not come as surprise that Conchita Wurst was the hot topic on Twitter during last night’s semi-final. When Austria was on stage, 7,442 tweets were sent in a minute, EBU and DR’s graphic shows. Another peak was when the results were announced. Also the Polish performance, on stage right before Conchita, was widely spoken on Twitter. A total of 500,257 tweets were sent about Eurovision during the show.
The first semi-final’s peak on Twitter occurred when Iceland was on stage. Some 7,000 tweets were published then as well.
