It has been a busy few days for twitteratti who took to their smartphones and laptops after it was reported that reality television star Kim Kardashian was filing for a divorce from basketball star Kris Humphries.

Fans and haters alike have been tweeting madly to express their views about the 72-day-marriage coming to an end with ninety-three per cent of online conversations on Tuesday, October 1 about the divorce posted on Twitter, according to data from social media analytics firm NetBase, reports The Washington Post Social Reader.

Ryan Seacrest, producer of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians”, stated that, “There are reports online that Kim Kardashian is filing for divorce. That is true,” Seacrest explained. “She is filing for divorce from Kris Humphries this morning. I’ve spoken to her briefly, and she is sad and got caught up in all that was going on [in the wedding]. There were rumors up until the wedding, and after the wedding a lot of rumors about it. It is true.”

Kardashian herself cites “irreconcilable differences “ as the reason for the breakup, while Humphries told People magazine, “I love my wife and am devastated to learn she filed for divorce.” Adding that, “I’m committed to this marriage and everything this covenant represents and I’m willing to do whatever it takes to make it work.”
