Beyoncé Sets Twitter Record With Pregnancy Announcement

Beyoncé

Everyone was atwitter over Beyoncé’s pregnancy reveal at the MTV Video Music Awards. The surprise announcement was a social media phenomenon and helped Twitter break a new record.

According to Twitter, the news of a little one for Mr. and Mrs. Carter set a new record on the microblogging service: 8,868 tweets per second. The previous record took place when the U.S. women’s soccer team took on Japan in July, registering 7,196 tweets per second.

Not only did B deliver a Twitter blockbuster, but her public reveal also helped MTV achieve ratings gold. The 28th annual show was the most watched VMAs in the network’s history, with a record 12.4 million total viewers and 8.5 million of those 12-to-34 years old, according to AdAge.

Beyoncé performed “Love on Top” during the broadcast, rubbing her baby bump as a smiling Jay-Z looked on.

    @Holler., first off why bring rihanna in to this? She is in the UK promoting loud she wasn’t even at the billboard awards, i swear haters keep hating, loud is going strong with over 5 million sold. i love bey so i won’t bring her in this! just so you know, rihanna is one of 3 artist this year that has sold over 5 million. who needs to stay relevant are those who are selling less! Now congratulations to beyonce, she said when she was 30 she was going to have a baby. :)

    isabella! Reply:

    @Real Issh, i get what @Aaliyah is saying because no one knew that beyonce was going to show she was pregnant so who ever watched didn’t watch for that reason but i know as soon as someone posted it on twitter millions of people turned it on.

    I love that picture of her lol, she’s so cute. I couldn’t be happier for her having one of the happiest moments in her life coming soon. God bless that beautiful child along with the family.

    When I saw her rubbing her baby bump with all that happiness and pride in her eyes, and the joy I seen in Jay’s face, that moment made my night right there. For the first time, I think I realized how beautiful a marriage and having a child can be. As young as I am (15) I’m not planning on doing it soon, but it’s things like that that want to make you find love

    You know the government saves every tweet you do? Big Brother is watching even if you think they aren’t. Just another way to control and watch people.

    @WatchTheThrone,

    Hey that news has no business here. That kind of information requires a higher number of brain cells and functioning than most people on this site harbor.

    Check out Joe’s reply. The grim social problems in the world should be totally overlooked and forgotten because of one-super-uber-famous woman’s pregnancy. Can’t you see that??????

    He that is proud of riches is a fool. For if he is exalted above his neighbors because he has more gold, how much inferior is he to a gold mine?

    I Hate When People Call Beyonce King B because Nicki Was calling herself a King First & Uhm I Still Love B Dont Get Me Wrong But I Feel She Shoulda Stuck to Queen B .. Congrats Bey Hope The Baby Comes Out Beautiful Like Its Mommy

    [Reply]

    Lo Reply:

    @YuHoes Funny, Nicki has no RIGHTS to be called Queen nor King, maybe Princess. Beyonce sees there is no other male artist claiming the King spot so she decided to own it her self King B.
