NYP: A Twitter user recently raised the alarm by posting a screenshot of a tracker app showing about 100 sharks gathering in the Atlantic Ocean near the East Coast of the US.
A platform user with the handle @punished_stu tweeted early Wednesday “sharks are amassing on the east coast” with an accompanying screenshot of about 100 sharks along the US coast line. The tweet went viral, garnering more than 6,000 retweets and 53,000 likes.
“I occasionally log in to check that the nearest Great White is at least 2000 miles away,” the Twitter user followed up.
The graphic came from shark tracking website Ocearch, which attempted to calm unnerved social media users.
