35.6m Tweets Sees Germany’s Demolition Of Brazil Break Twitter Stat Records Left, Right And Centre (With ‘Heat Map’)

By Chris Wright

Soccer - FIFA World Cup 2014 - Semi Final - Brazil v Germany - Estadio Mineirao

Perhaps unsurprisingly, Germany’s 7-1 dismantling of Brazil set a new record, becoming the most talked about single sporting encounter in Twitter history – obliterating the previous record for “Tweets sent during” previously held by last season’s Superbowl game between Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos.

Last night’s bamboozling World Cup semi-final saw a staggering 35.6million Tweets sent during the game, eclipsing the previous record total of 24.9million Tweets that were sent during that aforementioned Superbowl 48 game back in February.

Thankfully, we’ve got another one of those cool “heat map” things to accurately demonstrate how the Twitter activity intensity panned out across the world…

Another Twitter record was broken after Sami Khedira scored Germany’s fourth of the evening too, as a peak of 580,166 Tweets per minute were sent (mostly by bewildered Brazil fans in a state of emotional apoplexy, we imagine) in the aftermath of the goal – once again smashing the previous record of 388,985 which was set when Brazil knocked Chile out two weeks ago!
