A great white shark with its own Twitter account has been detected off the coast of southern New Jersey - and she's not alone.

Mary Lee was tagged off Cape Cod, Massachusetts, in 2012 and has been known to travel up and down the East Coast. She is 16 feet long and weighs about 3,500 pounds.

The Press of Atlantic City reports she was detected a few days ago east of Delaware's Fenwick Island.
