The Unexpected Way HBO Max's Euphoria Made Twitter History

"Euphoria" has emerged as a smash hit success for HBO. In fact, the series is so popular already that its viewership numbers are second only to "Game of Thrones." As if this weren't impressive enough, the medieval fantasy series from George R. R Martin built up that kind of fervor over eight seasons, while Sam Levinson's teenage drama is chasing its tail after a mere two seasons (via IGN).

"Euphoria" charts the dysfunctional lives of a group of teens as they face their trauma and contend with the pressures of growing up in an age where the constant pressures of social media make life more complicated than ever. The series is led by multi-talented performer Zendaya and series breakout Hunter Schafer, with actors like Sydney Sweeney, who recently earned an Emmy nod for her role on the show (via The New York Times), regularly setting the series on fire as well. As if all of this wasn't impressive enough, fans of the series will be thrilled to find that they've helped "Euphoria" reach yet another milestone.

Euphoria is the most tweeted about show of the decade

Twitter has revealed that "Euphoria" is the most tweeted about show of the decade so far (via Variety). The series had fans buzzing all over the social media app during its knockout second season, with users sending out an awe-inspiring 30 million tweets over the course of only eight episodes. 

Season 2 of "Euphoria" made good on many of the seeds planted during Season 1. Rue (Zendaya) finally got caught for her drug relapse, Cal (Eric Dane) had a huge meltdown in front of his entire family, and Cassie (Sydney Sweeney) tried desperately to keep her relationship with Maddie's (Alexa Demie) ex a secret.

Still, it seems it was a less sensational element of the series that powered a good portion of the chatter on Twitter. Odd couple Lexi (Maude Apatow) and Fezco (Angus Cloud) had a sweetly blooming romance that fans just couldn't get enough of during the second season of "Euphoria," leading to over 270,000 tweets about their burgeoning relationship alone.

With Season 2 having only wrapped up in early 2022, it's unlikely that we'll be seeing more of "Euphoria" until 2023 at the earliest, but if the series can maintain this kind of enthusiasm with subsequent seasons, it might be coming for a spot on the Iron Throne itself. Look out, "Game of Thrones," as House Rue has warned for ages, "Euphoria" is coming.
