Beyonce’s splashy show, a freak power outage, and—oh, yeah—a captivating game of football combined to generate a record 24.1 million posts on Twitter during Sunday night’s Super Bowl.
The Super Bowl was halted for 34 minutes because of a power outage Sunday, plunging parts of the Superdome into darkness in the biggest game of the year.
The driver of a car that crashed into a power pole and a parked truck in San Francisco’s South of Market neighborhood following a California Highway Patrol pursuit early Friday morning fled on foot, a police spokesman said.
