13 Reasons Why is breaking all sorts of barriers: first dispelling the manic pixie dream girl trope and now surpassing a record for most-tweeted about Netflix Series in its first week of streaming.
The teen drama, laden with heavy issues, was recognized for its top-Twitter status by Fizziology, a leading social media research firm. In its premiere week, 13 Reasons Why garnered 3,585,100 tweets. For comparison, Fulller House had 1,324,534 tweets and Black Mirror had 452,516 tweets in their first weeks.
13 Reasons Why is also thus far the most-tweeted streaming TV series of the year, Twitter additionally notes.
According to all the numbers, it seems like 13 Reasons Why — dealing with everything from sexual assault to suicide — is bringing awareness about serious topics to a great number of Netflix watchers.
