Twitter World Cup 2010

FIFA World Cup is the largest sporting event in the world, and soccer is the most beautiful game. The party has started today in South Africa, and tweeples in the twitterverse are already tweeting about the games. Twitter trends show that #worldcup and related terms are already hot topics.

Twitter staff member, jennadawn tweeted: Seems like all the top trends are revolving around the #worldcup. The fever is spreading!

twitter's tweet

Twitter has joined the world cup party, and adding little images (0.56cm x 0.56cm) of soccer balls to #worldcup hash tags and flags to the tags for each participating country like #alg (for Algeria) and #usa (for United States). The cool little trick Twitter is calling hashflags appear to be a hit with users. Any user who tweets with the relevant #tag of a member nation, such as #bra, then a miniature version of Brazil’s flag will appear next to the #tag in his tweets, and a soccer ball will appear next to #worldcup.

Twitter co-founder Biz Stone wrote on the company’s official blog yesterday:

The Republic of South Africa will host representatives from thirty two nations as they compete for the ultimate international championship. This will be the most widely-viewed sporting event in the world. Twitter’s rapid international growth means we are part of this global phenomenon as people everywhere seek to discover what’s happening with their favorite team, their favorite players, and breaking news related to this worldwide event.

The micro-blogging site Twitter has released a special mini website dedicated to FIFA World Cup fans to capture the spirit of the World Cup using live widgets, real-time search, and popular live tweets about the event.
