Sharks have left a big mark on Twitter already, but brace yourself — they’re coming again. Sunday is the official start to the Discovery Channel’s @SharkWeek, which means you can get face-to-face with a Great White on your TV … and on your Twitter timeline.
Shark Week fans look forward to this time of year, all year.
As you might expect, sharks are usually the kings of the show (and the sea), but don’t dismiss the seals: be sure to follow @SnuffyTheSeal for snark as he narrowly avoids becoming dinner. And for post-show fun, follow the hashtag #SharkAfterDark to chime in on the new late-night talk show hosted by comedian Josh Wolf (@joshwolfcomedy), complete with a breakdown of Twitter chatter from the night’s #SharkWeek lineup.
A few anticipatory Tweets from fans:
HOLY CRAP! It’s shark week in 3 days!!!! #itslikechristmas— Levi Mitchell ( @levimitchell) August 1, 2013
And of course, Snuffy teases:
In preparation for #SharkWeek I’m doing a lot of Pilates. How are you getting ready?— Snuffy the Seal ( @SnuffyTheSeal) August 1, 2013
For those of you tweeting that you’re literally dying for #SharkWeek to get here. Um, that hits a little close to home.— Snuffy the Seal ( @SnuffyTheSeal) August 1, 2013
No doubt about it: the water’s fine. For sharks.
