Game of Thrones season 3 premiered on HBO last night, and Tumblr’s conversation about it spiked for the occasion: out of 118k GoT-related posts in the past month, nearly a quarter (just over 23%) were made the night of the premiere.
Overall, 180k Tumblr users posted, reblogged and liked GoT posts on March 31st, earning a total of 354.5k notes so far.
What were some of the popular tags? The name of the show and its most common abbreviation - GoT - took the top two spots and were followed with a mixture of character names (Daenerys Targaryen, Sansa Stark, Jon Snow), the actors who portray those characters (Emilia Clark as Daenerys, Sophie Turner as Sansa, and Kit Harington as Jon Snow; see the full cast and crew here), and the name and abbreviation for the book series the show is based on (A Song of Ice and Fire or ASOIAF, written by George R.R. Martin).
Are you a Game of Thrones fan? Did you watch the show yesterday? And more importantly, did you post about it on Tumblr?
Reblog and talk about it, and Tyrion won’t have to slap you.
