Ian Ziering as Fin Shepard.

“Sharknado 2: The Second One” premiered on SyFy Wednesday night, and with it has come a Twitter storm of reaction to over-the-top moments and a slew of celebrity cameos, such as by “The Today Show” host Matt Lauer, who appears no less than six times.

Here’s a roundup of Twitter responses, including highlights from the Globe’s culture writer Michael Brodeur, who live blogged the entire “Sharknado 2” experience.

There was a whole lot of Matt Lauer and Al Roker.

Weather forecasters had cool graphics to work with.

It was raining sharks, and advice.

Could this be true?

Jason Priestley may have wanted to be Ian Ziering.

Others are getting in on the action.

Oh the acting.

Ian Ziering as Fin jumped the shark ... literally.

There’s the New York subway, and then there’s Subway.

There’s a lot to learn. Just ask Michael Brodeur.

Was it all worth it?
