Jenn Deering Davis, Founder of TweetReach, said: "'Pretty Little Liars' consistently has one of the most engaged and active audiences in social media. Few shows see these levels of activity during their broadcasts, and almost none can compare to the sustained conversation 'Pretty Little Liars' drives on Twitter. The fact that fans were posting more than 25K tweets per minute in the middle of the show speaks to just how engaged viewers are throughout the hour-long episode."

Moreover, according to SocialGuide, "Pretty Little Liars" became the #2 "most social" TV series episode on record in terms of total unique tweeters (432,948), behind only the series' Summer finale in August 2012 (612,459), giving ABC Family the Top 2 'most social' TV telecasts ever.
