Brazil vs. Germany 2014 World Cup Semifinal Sets Twitter Record
If for some reason you missed Germany’s stunning 7-1 drubbing of Brazil in yesterday’s World Cup semifinal, then you likely saw countless reactions to the Seleção‘s implosion via social media. In fact, the game was the single most-discussed sporting event in the history of Twitter: the platform revealed that the match saw 35.6 million tweets as users aired their 140-character reactions as the Germans continued to pile on the goals. For comparison, the previous high for tweets-per-match during the World Cup was 16.4 million during Brazil’s match against Chile while Super Bowl XLVIII garnered around 25 million. We’ll have to wait and see how today’s World Cup semifinal fares as the Netherlands get set to take on Argentina this afternoon.
