Multi-platinum artist Beyoncé caused a Twitter frenzy upon revealing a “baby bump” following her performance at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards.
Thanks to Beyoncé’s 2 million followers, among others on Twitter that night, this moment holds the top spot as the world’s most tweeted moment. It’s ironic, considering @Beyonce,as of this writing, has never actually tweeted anything.
Beyoncé’s estimated earnings were $87 million dollars, according to Forbes magazine’s ranking of the top 20 highest Hollywood earners of 2010.
