Sharknado became a Twitter sensation when it premiered on the Syfy network on Thursday, July 11. The movie -- about a tornado filled with sharks -- stars Tara Reid, Ian Ziering and Cassie Scerbo. Dozens of celebrities weighed in on the over-the-top flick via the social networking site.
"As usual, the beach youths all deserve to die," former MTV News staff Kurt Loder wrote. "Rooting for the sharks #Sharknado." Actor Patton Oswalt joked, "Dear @SyfyTV: please follow up SHARKNADO with PARTLY CLOWNY. Sky. Clowns. Michael Pare (probably)." 30 Rock alum Judah Friedlander also pitched a movie to the network, writing, "SharkFart vs Diarrhea Whale. Call me @Syfy. That's my movie pitch. #Sharknado."
Ziering, 49, wasn't able to catch the premiere. "#LiveTweetingSharknado I cant believe how this movie is blowing up ALL social media," he wrote. "Working with @Chippendales tonight, seeing it tomorrow." The Beverly Hills, 90210 alum added, "After seeing myself in a wetsuit at 207lbs I'm surprised I didn't get eatin first.. #lardandincharge."
