The best tweets from 'Sharknado 2' last night



UPDATE: The ratings numbers are in for the Sharknado sequel, and it looks like 3.9 million viewers watched the first airing Wednesday night. That audience is impressively larger than the original Sharknado, which was seen by 1.4 million viewers in its initial telecast last July.

Sharknado 2 The Second almost broke Twitter last night, drawing 5.3 million viewers in what CNN mused "What does it say when Americans unite, not once, but twice in a lifetime for a TV show." Or as one of my favorite tweets of the night noted:

Sharknado 2 whipped up Twitter feeding frenzy and #Sharknado2TheSecondOne was the top-trending hashtag on Twitter well into the overnight hours and social search website Topsy recorded more than 220,000 tweets with #sharknado2 over the past day.
