Beyonce's pregnancy news sets social media record

LOS ANGELES, CA

The Houston native first made the big announcement on the red carpet before the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday.

As soon as she did, traffic on Twitter went into hyper drive! The micro blog set a new per-second Tweet record at more than 8,800 Tweets per second. That beats the previous record of 7,100 Tweets during Japan's victory in the Women's World Cup finale in July.
