The Broadway musical Hamilton, which has been breaking all kinds of records in its run at the Richard Rodgers Theatre, has added another: It inspired more than one million tweets during the calendar year 2015, according to Twitter.

In a statement Twitter said, "In the past 30 days alone, there have been 220K Tweets about Hamilton the Musical. The conversation around Hamilton stands out, as @Lin_Manuel (Lin-Manuel Miranda) has utilized the power of Twitter to connect with his now 162K followers and fans regularly (this time last year he had 50K followers)."

A spokesperson for Hamilton said the production had "no comment" on the announcement by Twitter.


In addition to Miranda's personal Twitter account, fans have posted and retweeted about the semi-weekly Ham4Ham concerts on the steps of the Richard Rodgers Theatre.

Here is a chart highlighting conversation over the last month:


ABC News reported that the 2015 Tony Award-winning Best Musical Fun Home generated 266,000 tweets; the Tony Awards broadcast as a whole generated a total of 323,000 tweets during its June telecast.

The hip-hop musical about Founding Father Alexander Hamilton written by Lin-Manuel Miranda was also the first Broadway cast album to land the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Rap Chart.
