However, it was the scale of the broadcast that caught the attention of non-ARMYs. Very quickly, the hashtag #btsbutimscreamingthelyrics was trending online.
With fans and non-fans alike joining the broadcast, it quickly broke the previous record for the number of viewers for a single Twitter Space by beating the first user to reach over 50,000 listeners.
#btsbutimscreamingthelyrics becomes the first Space to have over 50,000 listeners in history!

The Twitter Space itself lasted for around three and a half hours, and fans online just couldn’t get enough of the free concert they were treated to! Although Suga might not be aware of who his “Yoongi’s gf” is, the members should be proud that an ARMY has made such an impact!
