Beyoncé Knowles’ Tumblr, www.beyonce.tumblr.com , just went live, and it’s prefaced with a sweet, handwritten note that reaches out to the Social Web: “This is my life, today, over the years — through my eyes. My family, my travels, my love. This is where I share with you. This will continue to grow as I do,” says the singer-actress before adding her autograph. The same day, Knowles sent off her first tweet to give news of the completed revamp of her official Web site, Beyonce.com. She’s had a Twitter account for years, but had never actually posted anything.
Beyoncé’s younger sister Solange, on the other hand, was an early Twitter star. She continues to tweet and is an avid poster of family pictures on her own blog, so it’s not really a stretch to say that kid-sis Solange may be having a marked influence on her supremely famous older sibling. And that makes sense because the first two pictures on the Tumblr blog show Solange and Beyoncé together.
Despite her fierceness on stage, Beyoncé is known for being intensely reticent about her private life. It even took what seemed like forever to even refer to Jay-Z as her husband in public, even though everyone knew the super duo had tied the knot. Earlier this year Beyoncé also choose Tumblr to release photos of her three-month-old daughter, Blue Ivy.

Beyoncé Knowles is with child. News of the soon-to-be-arriving Carter-Knowles progeny created such a delirious twittering outburst that a new record for Most Tweets Per Second was set on the popular micro-blogging site. The previous record had only just been set last month when it became apparent that Japan had bested the United States during the women’s World Cup final. At that time, the tweets-per-second record was 7,196 tweets. So what was the Twittering rate reached by Sasha Fierce? Final count came down to 8,868 tweets per second.
On Sunday, as the MTV Music Awards were about the begin, Beyoncé divulged her big news by way of a (non)red carpet stroll that included a lot of belly-holding and demarcating. During the show she performed “Love on Top,” rubbed her swelling abdomen and told her audience, “I want you to feel the love that’s growing inside me.”
Other recent events that have garnered a lot of tweeting: Osama Bin Laden’s death, Japan’s March earthquake and tsunami, and the British monarchical wedding. America’s most famous singer married America’s most famous rapper, Jay-Z in 2008. Before and after their marriage, Beyoncé had been the focus of innumerable pregnancy rumors. Many congrats to the happy couple.
