The laptop gurus and code ladies have done their magic and the final numbers for Bisexual Awareness Week are in!

(drum roll)

199 million people reached with bisexuality related tweets during #biweek 2015!

Over 120,000 individual tweets shared over a quarter of a billion times!

In comparison, last year we saw thousands of tweets for #biweek and half a million people reached with bisexuality's most popular hashtag #bivisibilityday. So this is a huge increase in social engagement surrounding bisexuality. 

In fact, there was so much awesomeness, we had to make a video of the data and popular images of the week.
