Brazil vs Germany Semi Final Was the Most-Tweeted Event in History

The unexpected, shameful 7-1 beating which Brazil got at the hands of Germany on Tuesday did cause an explosion on social networks, in particular at Twitter.

The incident took over Super Bowl (whatever that is) as the most-tweeted sporting event in the world.

To make it further special, Twitter released a heat map (produced below). Watch closely how after the scoring of the fifth goal, the “Twitterati” simply explodes.

There were further statistics, too. At its peak, which obviously was the moment the fifth goal was scored (by Sami Khedira), 580,166 tweets were being posted a second.

Before the World Cup, that record was a measly 382,000. It got improved by a hair to 389,000 between the Brazil vs. Chile game earlier in the tournament.

Lastly, total number of tweets sent stood at a mammoth 35.6 million, totally owning the previous figure of 24.9 million set by Super Bowl 2014.

You have to admit though, Twitter was a heaven if you are a troll in those intense moments. Here are our favourite picks:

However, the show was stolen by this graceful man, who has reportedly been to 60 countries to watch his team live in 150 matches. Seen brandishing a fake trophy earlier, he later handed it over to the German fans after the game.

    Kindly remove the Christ’s Pics from the post. If u being Muslims r hurt from something we as Christians are also hurt. If someone is sharing these pics let them do that, but I am very disappointed because i am a regular user of propakistani.

    U should always consider before posting that it should not hurt someone, if u wont remove the pics, I being a Pakistani citizen a helpless citizen will not be able to do anything because Pakistan is ruled by Muslims and its okay if u mock other religions. Waiting for the Christ’s Pics to be removed from above post

      Yes, Please remove these pics. Hazrat Easaa (peace be upon him) are more related and close to muslims than any other religion.
