Madonna Halftime Show Sets Off Twitter Firestorm

twitterMadonna's halftime show is all the rage, man. Seriously, it seems like it's all anybody's talking about today. More so than the game itself (which is fine by me 'cause that means I can participate -- tee-hee, I'm a girl!). It's all over the news. It's all over the blogs. And, of course, it's all over Twitter.

Last night, Madge's Super Bowl performance set off a firestorm of Tweets. As soon as she took to the stage, everybody from famous people to run-of-the-mill Joe Schmoes started unleashing their opinions into the Twittersphere. Some were polite. Some ... not so much. 

Oh, Internet, you really never cease to amaze with your meanness. Let's check out some Madonna-centric Tweets from the past 24 hours.


The celebs who tweeted about Madge were all positive. Obvi. Here's what some people had to type:

@Eva_Longoria: Madonna is amazing!!! Love her always! What a performer! All my fav songs!

@waynebrady: Gotta give it up to Miss Madonna… She’s still an amazing performer and if you can dance like that in heels at 50+ then go ahead!

@SteveMartinToGo: Congrats to Madonna for great spot, especially considering game has resumed during last three minutes.

@denise_richards: Madonna looks amazing!! Great #halftime show!!!

@alecbaldwin: “Two quarters of SuperBowl and the strongest performer is Madonna…”

@KrisJenner: “Madonna was amazing!!!!!!! Perfection!!”"

Then there were the not-so-positive tweets from the lesser-known folk. And there were lots of 'em. According to analysis, some of the most popular words pertaining to Madonna's performance on Twitter were "bad, hating, old, retire, and seriously." Ouch.

Here's the thing about mean tweets on Twitter when pertaining to some big event -- at least in my opinion: People have already made up their mind about the thing before they even see it. They've got whatever their clever dig is in the chamber, ready to fire off as soon as it starts happening. I mean, of course there were going to be a ton of rude tweets about Madonna during and after her show -- it's the world we live in.

Thankfully, Madge had kind tweets from her celeb pals to balance things out. If only we were all that lucky.
