Twitter’s famous shark swims again near Atlantic City coast


ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — Scientists continue to track Twitter’s favorite great white shark as it swims near the coast of New Jersey.

The shark is known as Mary Lee and showed up in waters near Atlantic City on Wednesday morning. She was detected off the coast of Cape May with a male great white named Cisco on Saturday.

Members of the nonprofit group OCEARCH have actively tracked Mary Lee since they tagged her in 2012. Mary Lee has logged close to 40,000 miles travelling along the East Coast since then.

The great white’s Twitter profile is managed by the nonprofit group and has more than 100,000 followers.
