Game of Thrones set another record: Sunday night’s epic Battle of Winterfell was the most-tweeted-about scripted TV episode of all time.

The super-sized 82-minute season 8 episode — titled “The Long Night” — delivered more than 7.8 million tweets. According to Twitter, that’s a new all-time record.

The most-tweeted-about characters were Arya, the Night King, Bran, Jon Snow, and Cersei (that last one is a bit surprising considering she wasn’t actually in the episode).

Actual Nielsen viewership for the episode will be available Tuesday. The recent GoT final season premiere delivered about 17 million viewers in the overnight ratings including streaming.
