by at .

Pictures of Kim Kardashian nude in Paper Magazine failed to break the Internet last December.

But Sharknado 3 came pretty darn close.

The third installment of this Syfy movie franchise more than doubled the Twitter output of Sharknado 2, as the network jus sent out a press release that listed a number of startling figures. 

To wit, Sharknado 3...

  • Generated more Twitter activity than every episode of the final season of Mad Men... every episode of this season’s The Bachelor ... and Hillary Clinton’s presidential announcement.
  • Overall, it generated TWO BILLION Twitter impressions last night.
  • Sharknado 3 clips have generated nearly 6 million views to date, including 4.1 million on Syfy’s YouTube channel.
  • Stars who Tweeted about Sharknado 3 included: Tyra Banks, William Shatner, Kevin Jonas, Wendy Williams and Alyson Hannigan, as well as NASA, American Red Cross, the Department of Defense, NASCAR, the NBA and the NHL.

Considering all these facts and figures, it is any wonder Sharknado 4 has already received a greenlight from Syfy?
