'Sharknado 2' Is Set To Break The Internet, Twitter Be Warned | Syfy

Last year, the buzz around "Sharknado" blew us all away, and now that the sequel is upon us, star Ian Ziering warned the "nerds" over at Twitter headquarters, to get “those servers backed up because a storm is coming … and it’s a huge 'Sharknado' wave," he told Mashable.

Reports say that the first "Sharknado" generated more than 600,000 tweets mere hours after it aired, peaking at more than 5,000 tweets per minute, according to The Hollywood Reporter. To put it in perspective, some numbers indicate that's more than double the Red Wedding episode of "Game of Thrones."

Now, with "Sharknado 2: The Second One" adding even more famous names like Vivica A. Fox, Kari Wuhrer and Mark McGrath and going all out on promotions with dedicated programing on Syfy, a Comic-Con panel and more, this time Twitter might not make it out alive.

#Sharknado2TheSecondOne already started trending more than 12 hours before the premiere. Check out some of the best tweets and a live stream below:
