Beyonce's baby makes Twitter bounce



beyonce.jpgIf you were having trouble getting onto Twitter on Sunday night, blame MTV. And surprise, the fault this time doesn’t land on the Jersey Shore clowns. The Associated Press says Beyonce’s pregnant performance at the MTV Video Music Awards sparked a Twitter record, with 8,868 tweets per second when she performed at 10:30 p.m.

At the VMAs, Beyonce revealed a baby bump, cupping her growing belly for photographers as she arrived and rubbing her tummy when she performed. The 29-year-old singer is married to Jay-Z. The VMAs also drew MTV’s biggest audience since the network began measuring its viewership. Sunday night’s show attracted 12.4 million viewers.
