The Black Eyed Peas may not have flashed a tassle-clad nipple like
Janet Jackson or looked to be in a strung-out coma like Tom Petty during their halftime show, but their performance, a medley featuring "Tron" style dancers all over the field, a giant "LOVE" stage, Will.i.am in some sort of asymetric space helmet and a Slash cameo created more Twitter ire than just about any event in history.
Below are some of the top tweets.
