"The most tweeted moment in the history of Twitter was during one airing of Castle in the Sky on Japanese TV on August 2, 2013, when fans tweeted the word "balse" (バルス or "barusu") at the exact time that it was said in an important moment of the movie. There was a global peak of 143,199 tweets in one second"

On the wikipedia page of Castle in the Sky.
