Half the fun of experiencing the premiere of Syfy's insane new original movie Sharknado last night was watching the saga unfold on Twitter.

At its peak, the shark storm was drawing 5,000 tweets per minute from viewers, and the Twitter buzz eventually grew so big that it eclipsed even the reaction to Game of Thrones' now-infamous "Red Wedding" event earlier this year. Even if you weren't watching the movie, you could tell from looking at your Twitter feed that something big was happening.

And of course, an event as crazy as Sharknado was bound to bring out the cleverness in Twitter users. Professional comedians, screenwriters and average fans alike got in on the action with some amazing quips, observations and reactions. A quick browse of the #Sharknado hashtag will prove just how big the phenomenon got, but if you don't have time for that, we gathered 25 of our favorite tweets from last night's Sharknado fun right here.

And hey, if you're feeling left out, don't fret. Sharknado re-airs Thursday, July 18, at 7/6 Central on Syfy.
