While the spike was short-lived, discussion surrounding the event continues this morning, as the participants are still trending topics on Twitter, and as you can see in the graph, there are still tens of thousands of tweets pouring in about Kanye’s antics.

Meanwhile, in case you missed it, the VMA’s culminated with Beyonce taking “Video of the Year” and then inviting Swift on stage to finish the acceptance speech that Kanye interrupted earlier in the night:
