'Game of Thrones,' 'Stranger Things' and 'The Simpsons' Are Most Tweeted TV Shows of 2019

Twitter has revealed which of this year's biggest on-screen moments have grabbed users' attention, with the divisive final season of Game of Thrones leading the list.

Following the fantasy series on the list of most popular TV shows on Twitter in 2019 were Stranger Things at number two, while the massive amounts of Simpsons memes accounts made the Fox show the third most-tweeted series of the year.

While eight of the 10 most-talked about shows were English-language shows, the huge worldwide audience for Netflix's Spanish series La Casa De Papel (known to English-speaking audiences as Money Heist) landed it in fourth place.

In fact, Netflix dominated the Twitter top 10, with three of the top shows Netflix originals, while other popular series on the list—like Grey's Anatomy and The Walking Dead—also appear on the streaming service after first airing on TV.
