Katy Perry Delivers Twitter Gold

Reuters reported three days ago that Katy Perry's halftime show would include lions, sharks, and live singing. I try to take advantage of all mentions of sharks in the popular culture for the benefit of my conservation programs, so when the halftime show started, I had my phone handy ready to tweet.

My sister Catie must have been reading my mind, because she sent me this amazing photo of Kim Jung Un. I tweeted it out just as halftime started. It got a few retweets, but nothing spectacular.

And then the sharks stepped out and the Internet went insane. This might be my most popular tweet ever. It's definitely top 5. Within minutes there were fake Katie Perry shark Twitter accounts, all more popular than my real Twitter account.

Oh, Internet. You never cease to amaze me. I was pretty proud of myself -- until I saw Snoop Dogg's halftime tweet.
