Few shows see these levels of activity during their broadcasts, and almost none can compare to the sustained conversation 'Pretty Little Liars' drives on Twitter. The fact that fans were posting more than 25K tweets per minute in the middle of the show speaks to just how engaged viewers are throughout the hour-long episode."
