According to Twitter, HBO Max’s “Euphoria” is currently the most tweeted tv show of the decade. The show was written and created by Sam Levinson and loosely based on an Israeli miniseries with the same name. It was released in the 1990s and had a similar plotline.
“Euphoria” stars Zendaya as Rue, one of the main characters and the show’s narrator. It also has Hunter Schafer, Angus Cloud, Jacob Elordi, Eric Dane, Nika King, Alexa Demie, Sydney Sweeney, Storm Reid, Barbie Ferreira, and Maude Apatow.
Season one had eight episodes, including two-hour-long specials between the first and second season. The second season started airing in early January and got a massive reception in viewership and social media. Twitter, in particular, recorded the show as the most tweeted of the decade.

Ahead of the final episode of this season, Twitter revealed that the teen series is currently the most tweeted show of the decade. There have reportedly been over 30 million tweets of the second season between 2020 and right now. This is over 50% higher than the social media interaction in the first season, which indicates a massive increase in viewership of the series.
Rue, Fezco, And Nate Are The Most Tweeted ‘Euphoria’ Characters
While most cast members got some social media attention, some characters got more tweet time than others. Twitter revealed the three cast members that bagged the top spots on Twitter. Fezco, Rue, and Nate are currently the most tweeted “Euphoria” cast.
The characters are listed under popular hashtags like #FexiHive, referring to Fez and Lexi’s budding romance, and #EndNateJacobs, where fans post who they think could “end” the troubled character.
There are also memes about some cast members. These include the trending “Cassie in HS vs Me in HS,” where fans compared the actress’s look in the series to their less stylish looks as high school students.

Rue’s police evading tactics were also a topic of discussion. One Twitter user joked that the character was doing “Parkour” while suffering withdrawal symptoms. Maddy’s scene where she said, “Bi*** you better be joking,” is also a Twitter favorite. Several variations were made of the scene, sometimes even changing the sentence entirely.
‘Euphoria’ Tweets From Celebrities And Influencers
Famous people aren’t left out of the “Euphoria” high. Several celebrities are part of the series train and sent out a couple of tweets about the show. Celebrities like Jack Harlow, Halsey, Drake, Maren Morris, Chlöe Bailey, Noah Beck, Chelsea Peretti, Ella Mai, Victoria Monét, Justine Skye, and Kid Cudi are just a few of them.

In a statement about the series, Twitter head of TV partnerships Jenna Ross said, “From hilarious memes to plot predictions and fashion inspiration, Euphoria has dominated Twitter this season. The show has built a strong community of dedicated fans who not only root for their favorite characters and scenes but also openly voice their frustrations and fears, especially as it relates to the fate of the characters.”
‘Euphoria’ Renewed For Season Three
“Euphoria” was unsurprisingly renewed for its third season, although there isn’t an exact release date. In addition to the amount of social media buzz this season generated weekly, season two also doubled the episode’s viewership compared to the first season.
The first episode of season two had a staggering 14 million views between HBO and HBO Max, almost 100% more than the 6.6 million views the first season got in 2019. The first episode of season two was the No. 1 most social premium cable episode after “Game of Thrones” earned the title for its finale in May 2019.
In a statement, Francesca Orsi, the executive Vice President of HBO Programming, said, “Sam, Zendaya, and the entire cast and crew of ‘Euphoria’ have taken Season 2 to extraordinary heights, challenging narrative convention and form, while maintaining its heart. We couldn’t be more honored to work with this gifted, wildly talented team or more excited to continue our journey with them into Season 3.”
