Eurovision Twitter: UK was the real runner up and Graham Norton the most mentioned
The BBC’s very own Graham Norton (@grahnort) was the most mentioned Twitter handle, followed closely by @bbceurovision and above the official @eurovision handle.
And while the UK likes to poke fun at Eurovision, London was the top time zone with 44% of users mentioning Eurovision.
The most popular tweet of the day was Russell Brand in a dress, in homage to Conchita.
5,384,678 tweets were sent around the Eurovision final, which amounted to 47,136 tweets per minute during the show.
