Beyonce is in the habit of breaking records this year.

Back in June, she was the first female artist EVER to headline the UK’s famous Glastonbury Music Festival, her perfume is the #1 best celebrity scent in the UK, and now since declaring to the world that she’s pregnant at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday … she has broken Twitter records!

A few seconds after finishing her stunning performance of “Love on Top,” the singer ripped open her purple sequined blazer to reveal her cute baby bump. With all of the excitement of her official “announcement,” this in turn smashed social networking site Twitter’s record of the highest number of tweets sent per second.

On Monday Twitter Global PR tweeted:

“Last night at 10:35pm ET, Beyonce’s big MTV #VMA moment gave Twitter a record bump: 8,868 Tweets per second.”

Beyonce took over the popular social networking site even further when “BEYONCE IS PREGNANT” became a worlwide Trending Topic, and many fans changed their Twitter avatars to photos of the songstress.

Who Run the World? … You should already know the answer to that one by now.
