Eurovision 2014 Twitter Statistics. Did you get your Tweet on? Who got the most Mentions on Twitter? Where were the most tweets sent from? What were the Top 5 Hashtags used during the Grand Final? What was the most liked Tweet during the contest and what were the most used languages on Twitter during Eurovision? We have it all for you. These statistics were taken during the Grand Final of Eurovision 2014 on May 10th. So let’s get started.

 

 

Highest Twitter Mentions and Handles

 

Well when it came to the performers taking part in the contest it was a two-horse race. Molly from the UK came second on Twitter with a whopping 140,700 mentions. She was only beaten by the ultimate Eurovision Winner Conchita Wurst who was mentioned a staggering 271,650 times on Twitter.

When it came to the most used Twitter Handles the winner was actually the BBC’s Eurovision commentator Graham Norton (@grahnort) who was closely followed by the BBC’s official Eurovision Handle (@bbceurovision) and then the Eurovision’s own handle came third (@eurovision). When you look at the Top Twitter Handles used during the final the performer whose handle was used the most was Eliza – the German Entrant at Eurovision.

This means that 47,136 tweets were tweeted per minute during the live Grand Final. 44% of all tweets came from countries in the London Time Zone. So the Uk and Ireland were the most prolific users of Twitter on the night. But who was next?

The Top 5 Hashtags Used During The Eurovision Grand Final

 

There were 2 official Eurovision Hashtags used in this year’s contest. First up was #Eurovision and then Danish TV (DR) created the theme of their production #JoinUs. So how did they compare in the Top 5 most used Hashtags used during the Eurovision 2014 Grand Final.

Volume of Tweets On The Night Of The Eurovision 2014 Grand Final

 

From this timeline graph you can see that as the performers began to take to the stage the volume of tweets being posted increased. However it was the “Busty” performance of Poland’s Donatan & Cleo that caused the first spike in the volume of tweets being posted. This came at 21:45 (CET) as the Polish Women graced the Eurovision Stage. There was a drop after that but then the huge peak of Austria’s Conchita Wurst performing on stage at 21:53 (CET) and then again when she won the contest.

There were 1,124,463 users on Twitter tweeting about the contest during the Grand Final of Eurovision this year. This is a colossal number of people engaging with Social Media during the show. What is interesting to compare are the Actual results of the Eurovision Song Contest versus the Most mentioned Acts on Twitter during the contest. This is where it gets very interesting. Just look at the differences between France, Poland and Norway in how they placed at Eurovision and on Twitter!

What Languages Did People Tweet In During The Eurovision Final?

 

It is very similar to last year where the UK and Ireland lead the way with English being most used. Ireland is by far one of the highest users of Twitter considering its small population. English, German and Spanish were the Top 3 languages used on Twitter but what were the Top 10?
