The superhero mega-hit “Black Panther” isn’t just leaving its mark on the box office record books. The film is hashtagging its way to history on Twitter, too.

Director Ryan Coogler’s film, which passed the $600 million milestone in domestic earnings this weekend, has generated more than 35 million tweets according to Entertainment Weekly. That amount makes it more discussion-worthy than the previous record holders, Star Wars flicks “The Force Awakens” and “The Last Jedi.”

EW offered more insights from Twitter on the social media phenomenon: the most-used “Black Panther”-related hashtags are #BlackPanther, #WakandaForever, and #Wakanda.

Rapper Kendrick Lamar’s tweet revealing the soundtrack list for the film is among the most retweeted tweets.

Rotten Tomatoes has a breakdown of more of the records being shattered by the film, including highest grossing solo superhero movie and highest grossing movie by a black director.
