Were you caught up in the Sharknado last night? SyFy/The Asylum scores big on social networks

If you were on Twitter last night then you couldn't escape the thousands of tweets about SyFy's SHARKNADO, which became the top trending topic of the evening, with even Hollywood heavyweights such as Damon Lindelof joining in the fun.

The movie centered on (you guessed it!) a tornado filled with sharks. Whatever the reason for the abnormal weather conditions, the sharks begin pummeling Los Angeles and attacking its residents. A goofy idea, for sure, but one that scored a home run for SyFy and the team behind the film at mockbuster specialists The Asylum.

The film, which debuted at 9 pm EST, peaked at over 5,000 tweets per minute at 10:58 pm. That's' almost 80 tweets per second, nowhere near the record of over 5,000 tweets per second set after Obama's second presidential election win, but still a huge event by Twitter standards.

If you missed it, we have the 'almost Red Band' trailer for you below. And if you did catch it, sound off with your thoughts on SHARKNADO below! We wanna hear what you thought.

I don't find the SyFy, "so dumb they're fun", movies appealing at all, but this was a sight to behold.
