Beyoncé's Super Bowl Halftime Show 'Breaks' Twitter With 270k Tweets Per Minute

Beyonce's performance during the Super Bowl XLVII Halftime Show was one of the most-anticipated parts of Super Bowl Sunday 2013.

And when she surprised America by performing "All the Single Ladies" with former Destiny's Child members Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams, the hype hit a fever pitch, as CBS Sports reported that Twitter was experiencing about 270,000 related tweets per minute.

That's quite the impressive rate, as at no point was the first-half buzz over all the action between the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers able to hit such a peak.

CBS Sports reported that the Twitter reaction to Ravens star Jacoby Jones' second-half, 109-yard punt return touchdown was another high point in the big game's reign over social media Sunday:

"The Twitter explosion of Jacoby Jones' touchdown just blew Twitter past 20 MILLION tweets about the #CBSSuperBowl!"

CBS, which had the exclusive live broadcast rights to the 2013 Super Bowl, made a strong push to get people tweeting about the game, and it appears that it paid off in the form of huge amounts of attention on the popular site.
