Wednesday Morning Update: The Amazing Spider-Man 2 continued its torrid pace on Tuesday as it rose 45% to 24,259 tweets, up from 16,690 tweets on Monday. By comparison the first film of the reboot franchise The Amazing Spider-Man had a scant 2.958 three days before its release. Because Spider-Man is such an iconic and popular character I decided to force matched tweets to also contain "amazing" as it did a much better job of getting rid of false positive matches. The drawback of course is that it omits many tweets meant for the film but its a necessary evil as plain old "spider-man" generates hundreds to thousand of non-relevant tweets every day. Take any other character such as say Thor or Wolverine and their impact on pop culture isn't as great and as such a search with just their name is possible. The good news is that I subjected the first film to these exact same restrictions so the fact that the sequel is so far ahead is a great sign for its chances.
Maleficient has a hefty 300% bump on Tuesday thanks to a few different pieces of news stories about the film: Jon Voight talking about being happy to see his granddaughter in the film, amongst others. This has been a big winner for Disney over the life of its marketing campaign and doesn't appear to be slowing down anytime.
