    Hurricane Irene might have wreaked havoc on the east coast over the weekend, but it wasn't powerful enough to overcome Beyonce's pregnancy announcement.

    At its peak, Hurricane Irene found itself the topic of 3,000 tweets per second on Saturday. Beyonce's pregnancy announcement Sunday night at the MTV Video Music Awards, however, was included in a peak of 8,868 tweets per second, according to Twitter.

    With that many tweets tallied per second, Beyonce's pregnancy has become the biggest event on Twitter, beating out the former tweets-per-second leader, the Women's World Cup final between the U.S. and Japan, which reached 7,196 tweets per second.



    Beyonce's feat becomes all the more impressive when one considers all the events it beat out. When Japanese Twitter users took to Twitter to ring in the new year, 6,939 tweets were sent out every second. President Obama's announcement of the death of Osama Bin Laden earlier this year prompted over 4,000 tweets to be sent out each second.

    On the sports side, the 2010 NBA finals saw 3,085 tweets per second, and Japan's World Cup victory over Denmark last year caused a spike of 3,283 tweets per second. During the 2011 Super Bowl, Twitter saw 4,064 tweets hit its service every second.
