With Nearly 4 Million Related Tweets, Fall Guys Is Officially A Twitter Sensation

It’s official: Fall Guys is a Twitter sensation. We know that because Twitter actually bothered to make an entire press release dedicated to the game even though we’re only two weeks out from their gaming insights blog post. Twitter isn’t going to wait when a game blows up as big as Fall Guys.

“Needless to say, the Fall Guys conversation on Twitter has been immense,” says Rishi Chadha, head of gaming partnerships, Twitter. “The game has really caught the attention of gamers of all kinds this August, from the professionals to more casual everyday gamers. We’ve been keeping tabs on Fall Guys conversations across the globe in recent days and it’s already shaping up to be one of the biggest games on Twitter for the second half of 2020.”

So let’s hit some stats! We already know that the Fall Guys Twitter handle just passed one million followers, but the number of Fall Guys tweets is an equally staggering 3.5 million. It’s also consistently been in the top 10 tweeted-about games for August even though it released on August 4th. Guess those three days didn’t really hurt them at all.

The guy (or gal, or other) handling the Fall Guys Twitter account is also a genius. They’ve been haranguing big-name Twitch streamers, re-posting fanart, and even hosting a charity auction to keep Fall Guys on the tips of everyone’s tweeting fingers.

For example, when TimTheTatman finally got his first crown, Fall Guys tweeted this video. It’s since become the most-liked Tweet from the account with 166.9K likes and counting.

So what countries are the biggest on talking about Fall Guys? Twitter gave us a list:

  1. Japan
  2. USA
  3. UK
  4. Brazil
  5. Spain
  6. Canada
  7. Mexico
  8. France
  9. Argentina
  10. Germany

Japan being head of the pack might seem surprising, but anyone who follows Japanese social media habits knows that Japan LOVES to talk about games. Even though the country has less than half the population of the USA, every single person with a phone is tweeting about what game they’re playing 24-7.

The USA takes second place, followed by the UK, Brazil, and Spain. Somehow, Argentina beat out Germany, Australia, and every other European country where Fall Guys is sold.

And finally, according to an impromptu Twitter poll hosted by the Fall Guys account itself, almost half of everyone’s Twitter timeline is filled with Fall Guys posts. This sounds about right.
