Twitter Animal Crossing: New Horizons most tweeted-about game

Twitter’s most tweeted-about game right now is Animal Crossing: New Horizons. I can’t really say that I’m surprised since half of my timeline is people imprisoning Timmy Nook, and the other half is people sending threatening messages to his dad.

The news was revealed by Twitter Japan per translation from sister site Siliconera. The data showed that the game was Twitter’s most tweeted-about game for the year ending on April 1, 2020. Interestingly, this past year has also seen the biggest increase in conversation around the franchise, with Japan being the country that tweeted about it the most. In the second half of March this year alone, conversations about the game spiked by 71 percent. On top of that, the number of unique accounts talking about Animal Crossing rose by 38 percent in the same period. Those will be the accounts sending debt threats to Tom Nook.

The data included a list of the top 10 most tweeted-about games around the world:

  1. Animal Crossing: New Horizons
  2. Fate/Grand Order
  3. Final Fantasy
  4. Ensemble Stars!
  5. Fortnite
  6. Monster Strike
  7. Granblue Fantasy
  8. Identity V
  9. Minecraft
  10. Knives Out

In the United States specifically, the most tweeted-about game list looks a little different:

  1. Animal Crossing: New Horizons
  2. Call of Duty
  3. Final Fantasy
  4. Fortnite
  5. Fire Emblem
  6. DOOM
  7. Super Mario
  8. NBA2K
  9. Overwatch
  10. The Legend of Zelda

The top five countries tweeting about Animal Crossing are, in order, Japan, the U.S., South Korea, France, and Spain. I feel the deepest shame that the U.K. isn’t on that list.
