The Super Bowl in Celebrity Tweets

Over 100 million people will have tuned in to watch the Super Bowl - the self proclaimed Greatest Show on Earth™ - last night, and that's just in the USA. It's broadcast all over the world, and just like here in Canada there will have been many a viewing party.


According to LostRemote.com, the previous tweets-per-second records were obliterated by Madonna's half time performance. There were 10,245 tweets-per-second compared to 7,196 when Japan won the Women's World Cup.


That, again, was smashed come the final seconds of last night's big game - which saw a staggering 12,233 tweets-per-second. That's a lot of sore thumbs.


Everyone was tweeting about it, and we've rounded up some of the best tweets from the celebrity world. Have a look:




Alyssa Milano is known to be a big New York Giants fan, and she proved it last night posting this picture before the game:
