Beyonce’s news that she’s expecting a baby — revealed on television during MTV’s Video Music Awards — broke a record on Twitter, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Twitter reported that messages featuring the news were issued at 8,868 tweets per second, the highest number ever recorded for a single event, the story notes.

The previous record, 7,196 tweets per second, was set in July during the last moments of the Women’s World Cup final, when the U.S. women’s soccer team lost to Japan in the final seconds of the game.
