Because your life needs another statistic about Pokemon GO mayhem.
If you would be so kind as to look away from your phones for one moment, you might be (un)surprised to know that, in the past week alone, Pokemon GO has been tweeted about nearly 5 million times already on Twitter.
Twitter announced the statistic today, revealing that 4.7 million tweets about Pokemon GO (and counting) have made their way onto the social media site since July 5th.
