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.
“We are currently studying the Northwest Atlantic White Shark, the white sharks that live off the Eastern United States and Canada,” the rep explained. “This is why we have so many recently tagged sharks in this area. We have tagged 83 white sharks in the NW Atlantic.”
