Kim Kardashian, Kris Humphries divorce has Twitter buzzing

Kris Humphries and Kim Kardashian.

Twitter sure is keeping up with the Kardashians – well, Kim’s divorce that is.

Unless you’ve spent the last day living under a rock, you probably heard that Kim Kardashian filed for divorce from hubby Kris Humphries.

While rumors started circulating weeks ago about the split, Kim made it official today, just 72 days after they tied the knot.

The couple will reportedly not seek an annulment and will cite “irreconcilable differences.”

Hollywood Life reported that Kim has had it up to here with Kris’ party lifestyle. ??Hollywoode Life, citing ‘reports’ says that Kim visited a top divorce lawyer after Kris spent multiple nights partying solo until the wee-hours of the morning in New York City. An unnamed source told Star magazine “he’s breaking Kim’s heart. Originally he was supposed to come to New York for a guys’ weekend, but at the last minute he switched it to Miami. I guess he thought that way they could drink and do whatever they wanted without Kim finding out.”

Once the story broke, the Internet was buzzing with the news. What most people were reacting to was how short the marriage was. 72 days! That’s just over two months. That’s about how long it took us to get through E!’s entire “Fairytale Wedding” special.

It comes to no surprise that the news was trending for most of the day on Twitter. The topic #ThingsLongerThanKimsMarriage was on top of the trends list providing amazing comic relief throughout the day.

Some highlights include:

“The time between iPhone launches. #ThingsLongerThanKimsMarriage”

“Michelle William’s verses in Destiny’s Child  #ThingsLongerThanKimsMarriage”

“Taylor Swift’s speech before Kanye West snatched the mic  #ThingsLongerThanKimsMarriage”

“Spanish commentator screaming GOOOOAAAALLLLLL  #ThingsLongerThanKimsMarriage”

“The pause that Dora the Explorer does when she asks us a question #ThingsLongerThanKimsMarriage”
