Sharknado 2 Causes Twitter Feeding Frenzy (Did You Watch)

Days after the original Sharknado took the Internet in its jaws last year, Syfy confirmed a sequel for the cultural phenomenon: Sharknado 2: The second one.




Well last night the long wait came to an end as Sharknado 2 premiered on the Syfy channel. Sharknado 2 moved moved the absurd meteorological disaster to the East Coast, wreaking havoc on an unsuspecting New York City.

When the first Sharknado premiered in July 2013, it generated 5,000 tweets per minute at its peak, and hit 387,000 social mentions. NBCUniversal later revealed that Sharknado was the most “social program on all of television –- broadcast and cable –- as well as Syfy’s most social telecast ever.”


Much of the online discussion Wednesday night centered on an insane opening sequence, impressive cameos — featuring Kelly Ripa, Al Roker, Kelly Osbourne and Mark McGrath and a catchy theme song that spells out the doom that is sharknado.

Twitter also exploded again, #Sharknado2TheSecondOne was the top-trending hash tag on Twitter well into the overnight hours. What causes this incredible desire and passion ?  Is it the rubber sharks flying through Midtown Manhattan, the storyline, the Al Roker cameo?

Yes. Yes. And yes.

With this amount of chum in the water, there was bound to be a feeding frenzy, right? And there’s more to come.


Syfy has already signed on for a thirdSharknado movie. Screenwriter Thunder Levin predicts now that New York has gone down, there might be a “global Sharkapocalypse.”


Check out some of these great tweets from Wednesday night:
