MANILA -- With Maymay Entrata and Edward Barber gracing the red carpet together and James Reid sweeping the awards, it's easy to see how the MYX Music Awards 2018 dominated Twitter Tuesday night. 

Traffic data showed that there were a total of 1.1 million posts on the awards show, spread over a number of related hashtags. 

Twitter found that the number of posts peaked during the red carpet, recording around 180,000 tweets per minute. 

Much of the volume can be attributed to the most mentioned artists, who were, unsurprisingly, Entrata and Barber, Darren Espanto, and Reid -- all of whom have very vocal fanbases online. 

Ultimately, all the buzz contributed to the awards show's official hashtag dwarfing all the other conversations, making it the most talked about topic throughout the night among Filipinos.
