We analyzed over 250,000 TIFF tweets between September 4 and 14 and RDJ had nearly three times as many retweets as anyone else.
Mr. Iron Man himself also accounted for the top eight tweets and nine of the top ten. Only a tweet from Once Upon a Time’s Lana Parrilla broke his streak:

RDJ was in Toronto promoting his new film, The Judge, with Robert Duvall. Maybe not coincidentally, The Judge was the most-mentioned film during the festival, of which its star accounted for almost three-quarters of its mentions.
Our pre-festival favourite, Clouds of Sils Maria, dropped to fourth, beat out by People’s Choice winner Imitation Game and Still Alice.
The top tweet from Downey Jr. was actually a farewell photo featuring his wife and son.
He also posted pictures of himself licking actor Vincent D’Onofrio and downing a drink on the red carpet.
