A social media record was broken on Sunday evening when Beyonce revealed to the world that she is pregnant.
The 29 year old singer performed at the MTV video music awards on Sunday night before revealing her exciting news. This led to an unrivalled cascade of Tweets, with people posting 8,868 tweets per second, beating the previous record of 7,196 per second when Japan beat the US in the women's World Cup final in July. This will be Beyonce's first child with her husband, Jay-Z.
Twitter announced in June that 200 million tweets are now being sent per day, an increase from the 135 million that were being sent a year before that, showing that the use of Twitter is growing faster than ever.
