Top 10 World Cup Twitter Trends
For continuous World Cup coverage, check out Mashable’s 2010 World Cup Hub, which will be updated throughout the games.
Who’s winning in the World Cup? There are plenty of scores and stats for that. Which teams and players are winning the hearts and minds of the Twitterverse? That’s another matter entirely.
With 32 national teams, 736 players, and 32 coaches, there are so many mentions to track. Every single national team appeared in Twitter’s Trending Topics this week, as well as the names of 99 individual players.
If that’s not enough Twitter-footy excitement for you, consider that certain goals have triggered surges of nearly 3,000 tweets per second, which is enormous when compared to the average of 750.
Remember, these rankings are not about team and player abilities, but reflect an aggregation of hotly discussed topics related to them.
