(Undated) -- "Sharknado's" appetite for social media is growing.
New figures from Nielsen show "Sharknado 2: The Second One" generated 581-thousand tweets during its premiere on SyFy Wednesday night. That's 263-thousand more tweets than those generated when the original "Sharknado" debuted last year. Wednesday night's Twitter activity made "Sharknado 2" the most social show of the night. The cameo-filled follow up found stars Ian Ziering , Tara Reid teaming up with their New York pals to save the city from the tornado-propelled sharks that wreaked havoc on Los Angeles last year.
