One Direction and their legion of fans pushed "TODAY show" and "1DTODAY" into a trending Twitter topic in the U.S.

The frenzy wasn't just online — thousands crammed into Rockefeller Plaza and the surrounding blocks to catch the boys from Britain.

"We have never, ever had a crowd this big," Al Roker said. "This one breaks ALL the records."

Join in the fun: tweet with the hashtag #1DTODAY.
