A surprise appearance by former president Bill Clinton to introduce clips of Lincoln not only got Lena Dunham really excited, but sent Twitter aflutter—with 18,290 tweets per minute.

Chatter about the evening’s exceptionally funny hosts, Amy Poehler and Tina Fey, hit peaks during their opening speech (their respective burns of James Cameron (10,446 tweets) and James Franco (1,680) were among the top-tweeted moments, according to Topsy), and again later in the night as they lamented their loss to Dunham in the Best Actress in a TV Musical or Comedy category.
