Germany vs Brazil – beat the Super Bowl with most Tweets ever

The 7-1 victory of Germany over the host nation Brazil this week set a new tweet record for a sports event.

A total of 35.6 million tweets were recorded, the previous record was during the Super Bowl in February (24.9 million tweets).

Twitter users started going crazy when Germany went up 5-0, with 580,000 tweets per minute.

Germany meets Argentina in the World Cup final on Sunday, the win over Brazil was shocking and historic so even though we are talking about the final we doubt that this record will be broken.
