Beyonce's pregnant performance at the MTV Video Music Awards has sparked a Twitter record.

When the 29-year-old star performed, there were 8,868 tweets per second.

The micro-blogging site said that rate was a record for the service.

Beyonce, who is married to Jay-Z, revealed a baby bump at the awards, cupping her growing belly for photographers as she arrived and rubbing her tummy when she performed.
