The World Cup final on Twitter

Some eye-opening Twitter action during the World Cup:

In a post on the company’s blog, Matt Graves, a Twitter employee, said that the final match of the World Cup “represented the largest period of sustained activity” for a single event since Twitter started several years ago.

Mr. Graves also said that during the final 15 minutes of the game the company was seeing more than 2,000 World Cup-related tweets per second, being generated from over 170 countries in 27 languages. Once Spain scored its winning goal, that number passed 3,000 posts per second.

Pretty remarkable stuff considering that there was nearly a revolution in Iran tweeted on Twitter.
