The social media platform reports Miley Cyrus' performance at the VMAs triggered 306,100 tweets per minute, CNET reports.

Miley sounded proud of the Twitter frenzy her performance caused.

"Smilers! My VMA performance had 306.000 tweets per minute. That's more than the blackout or Superbowl! #fact," Miley tweeted on Monday afternoon.

In comparison, Justin Timberlake's VMA performance earned almost 220,000 tweets per minute, CNET reports. Drake's performance was close behind with 194,500 tweets per minute.

The website also reports that Cyrus, who performed in what is being called a "suggestive" way, was mentioned 4.5 million times on Twitter, Sunday night after the VMA show. Timberlake and Lady Gaga followed her with 2.9 million mentions and 1.9 million mentions, respectively.

According to Twitter, the data includes only tweets from the East Coast airing of the show. More data points will be released soon including all airings.

Though Miley Cyrus seemed proud of her Twitter record, she sounded disappointed that she hadn't won any awards for her hit single "We Can't Stop," Us Weekly reports.

"Leaving the VMAs. No it's not over," she tweeted. "I'm no psychic but congrats @onedirection #songofthesummer."

Robin Thicke's Twitter posts from the VMA performance also expressed excitement regarding their successful show.

"Got @MileyCyrus sitting to my left. Going to be a good night. Let's go #VMA's," Thicke tweeted before their duet.

After the VMAs ended, he tweeted: "That was dope. Shout out to @MileyCyrus @kendricklamar @2chainz"

He also added: "Such a wild night. Thanks to @MTV for letting me be apart of it. #VMA"
