On February 1, 2015, Katy Perry will perform as part of the Super Bowl XLIX Halftime Show. For many television viewers around the work, the actual game is somewhat of an afterthought. TV viewership of the Super Bowl has risen from an estimated 73.85 million in 1990 to an estimated 111.5 million last year. A good number of those fans tuning into the game won’t count themselves as fans of the Seattle Seahawks or New England Patriots but rather will tune in to see the Super Bowl XLIX commercials and the Halftime Show.
Considering Katy Perry has 64 million followers on Twitter, it is guaranteed that Twitter and other social media outlets will see a massive amount of activity during this halftime show. If Butters, Perry’s dog, makes an appearance during the event, it is likely Twitter will explode.
