Beyonce breaks Twitter record
When Beyonce revealed she was pregnant with her first child at the MTV video music awards (VMA) at the weekend, the singer became the most talked about musician at the moment, with traditional media outlets – broadcasters and newspapers – dedicating plenty of time and space to the story.
But in addition to that, the online world was equally buzzing with stories and videos about the fact that she and Jay Z were expecting.
Such was the hysteria surrounding her revelation that she has officially broken a world record – a Twitter one that is.
The R&B star was the source behind the record breaking 8,868 tweets per second, the most that has ever been recorded for a single event.
Curiously, the previous record was made when Japan beat the US in the women's world cup final earlier this year in July. That record was 7,196.
During the MVA, the Destiny's Child star, whose bandmate Kelly Rowland is currently a judge on the UK X Factor, told the audience: "I want you to feel the love that is growing inside of me."
