- The World Cup match between Germany and Brazil broke a record for inspiring the most tweets for any sporting event ever — even the Super Bowl.
- Germany's 7-1 blowout over host country Brazil inspired 35.6 million tweets, compared to the 24.9 million generated by this year's Super Bowl.
- During Germany's fifth goal, conversation peaked with 580,601 tweets in one minute.
This historical Twitter moment just goes to show how crazy the world is about the World Cup. Also, it could help serve as a case study for other televised sporting events in the future. The main lesson being that great content equals social media engagement. Mostly, it will just go down as a historical moment in social media and sports that others will aspire to recreate.
