EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J., Feb. 3 (UPI) -- Joe Namath's fur coat and Super Bowl security's wifi password were among the subjects discussed in the 24.9 million tweets posted about the Super Bowl.

Twitter said more than 24.9 million people posted about Sunday's game, the commercials and the halftime show, up from 24.1 million last year, with the most tweeted-about moments including Seahawks player Percy Harvin's 87-yard kickoff return for a touchdown, the Seahawks' touchdown pass to Jermaine Kearse and Malcolm Smith's 69-yard interception return, CNN reported Monday.

Another popular subject among tweeters was the fur coat worn by Joe Namath, the Hall of Fame inductee who tossed the coin at the start of the game. The coat drew comparisons to rapper Macklemore and the infamous "IKEA monkey" pictured wearing a fur coat in the furniture store's parking lot in a tweet from the Huffington Post @HuffPostCanada account.

Twitter users also discussed a CBS News report from Super Bowl security headquarters, which accidentally revealed its wifi network ID and password on screen during the report.

Some users could not resist taking cheap shots at the poor performance of the Denver Broncos.

"Use promo code PEYTON when ordering a Papa Johns pizza & when it's delivered to your house, a Seattle DB will take it from you & eat it," @robfee posted.
