This has been a popular act since 2009. On the December 9th, 2011, Balse was tweeted 25,088 times per second, which was later officially announced as a new Tweets-per-second world record.
Although originally Twitter Japan asked for users to refrain from simultaneously tweeting in fear of their servers, they later withdrew their earlier comment and embraced the ritual, calling it a "Balse Festival".
Niconico went as far as to challenge users to make a World Record of "Balse" tweets during their streaming of live commentary of the film from the Studio Ghibli producer Toshio Suzuki.
This year, the amount of tweets per second reached a new record of 143,199.
Twitter and niconico survived the onslaught of tweets whereas 2channel servers could not succumb to the spells.
