Women's World Cup Breaks Twitter Record!

Filed under: TwitterSoccer

World Cup Twitter record

We were, of course, sad to see the U.S. women's soccer team lose to Japan in Sunday's World Cup Final match, but we're happy to hear millions were watching AND tweeting!

In fact, the game managed to break a record on Twitter for most tweets per second, beating out both the death of Osama Bin Laden AND the Royal Wedding!

Twitter reported that the game's final minutes, during which Japan managed to clinch the victory by penalty kicks, drew 7,196 tweets per second!

Not bad ladies! You may not have won, but you still put on one hell of a show!
