Not only did Beyonce showing her baby bump on the red carpet get a record number of viewers to watch the VMA's this year, but during her performance on the show, a Twitter record was set. An average of 8,868 Tweets a second were being sent during her performance which beat the previous record by almost a 1,000. Second place was during the Women's World Cup soccer final. Here are my thoughts on this. Are that many people excited that Beyonce is pregnant that they have to share their excitement with the rest of the world that second? She is going to be pregnant for awhile, you can stretch out those Tweets over the next few months. Although I watched the Women's World Cup Final and Beyonce, I did not Tweet. I wonder if women are more active Tweeters. I wonder what the breakdown of Twitter is between the sexes. To me, the fact that the two most Twittered events revolved around women makes me think that women are much more likely to Tweet, which would also explain the Beyonce record. I doubt the average guy was sitting on his couch watching the VMA's and when he saw Beyonce put down his beer and said, "Damn, I better let the guys know at work that Beyonce is pregnant."
