Imran Khan, the former Prime Minister of Pakistan and Chairman of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), set a new record for the largest Twitter Space session on Wednesday, with over 165,000 listeners. Jibran Ilyas, PTI’s social media lead, and Dr. Arsalan Khalid, Khan’s previous focus point, hosted the session, which began at 10 p.m. PST. The session shattered all prior records in a matter of minutes.
Over half a million individuals attended the session, according to official figures, with the maximum number of live session listeners exceeding the 165,000 mark twice. The event was streamed live on Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube.
“Pakistan needs its army more than it needs Imran Khan,” he remarked, underlining that Pakistan would have ceased to exist if it weren’t for the army. By far the most listened to Twitter Space in history was Imran Khan’s live Twitter session. The previous high was 44,208 listeners for GOT7’s BamBam’s Twitter Space, followed by Vijay’s Birthday Twitter Space with 27,971 listeners and Salvador Bill Analysis with 26,218 listeners.
