Beyonce Shatters Twitter Record with Big Pregnancy Reveal

Outside L.A.’s Nokia Theater at Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards, Beyonce broke the major news to insiders that she’s expecting her first child with husband Jay-Z.

But it wasn’t until she hit the stage later that night when the rest of the world was let in on the news.

Moments after finishing her incredible “Love on Top” performance, the star, 29, ripped open her purple sequined D&G blazer to reveal her baby bump, which in turn shattered Twitter’s record of the highest number of sent tweets per second.

“Last night at 10:35pm ET, Beyonce’s big MTV #VMA moment gave Twitter a record bump: 8,868 Tweets per second,” the company’s official handle @TwitterGlobalPR tweeted on Monday.

The mass amount of 140 character-long messages wasn’t the only way the Grammy-winning artist took over Twitter: “BEYONCE IS PREGNANT” turned into a huge Trending Topic and many fans changed their Twitter profile pic to photos of the songstress.

Twitter’s impressive stat comes as no surprise, since Sunday night’s VMAs had the highest ratings for the award show ever. The Los Angeles Times reported that according to Nielson Co., the audience was up 9 percent compared to last year’s VMAs: 12.4 million viewers tuned in, making it MTV’s most-watched telecast ever.
