Twitter has become one of the most used platforms by Internet users in recent years for various reasons such as the ease of creating communities, the publication of messages in real time and because the most talked about topics of the moment can be located through the site, so it also is a meter of how much impact they have certain titles of series and movies.
With more than 300 million users, more than 65 million tweets are generated per day and 800,000 search requests are made, so appearing in the trend box on Twitter guarantees notoriety -for better or worse- and, in the case of entertainment, that more people show interest in reproducing a certain production.
