Euro 2012; Who did you cheer for?
We bet all Spaniards and Spanish fans are still celebrating yesterday’s magnificent 4-0 win over Italy in the European Championship football finale. From the data unveiled by Twitter, it seems soccer fans beat sports-related tweets after an estimated number of 15,358 tweets per second at peak.
The incredible record was achieved after the fourth goal scored by Juan Mata awarding Spain the Cup yet again.
Moreover, the behemoth blogging service declared that the finale that came after 3 long tournament weeks prompted an astounding number of tweets; 16.5 million to be exact from all over the world. Fans congregated to discuss and share their thoughts, commentary and of course loud rants.
The Euro 2012 related mentions were at their peak –accoring to a Twitter graph- after the two goals were scored, even though there was an extraordinary high number of tweets around the opening game, as well as the two semi-finals.
The graphic that provided this information is taken from Twitter’s very own interactive Euro 2012 site which explicitly shows how the tournament “played out” on the 140-character service.
Increased tration among all manner of fans from across the world has been realized throughout the help of many mainstream media such as BBC’s football team.
Yet, what intrigues us more is how footballers implemented the service and used it to make official comments and connect with their followers, or in Spanish star Andrés Iniesta’s case, celebrate victories:
It seems twitter has put some serious thought and work into covering this sports event, with the launch of the #Euro2012microsite and the continuous world breaking records. The next major tournament shall be in 2014, Brazil, when the FIFA World Cup will surely out beat all standing records. Yet, with the London Olympics set to start this summer, we are eager to view how tweeps from across the world shall react and interact.
Yet Twitter shall not stand alone in the Social realm with Facebook still wanting a bite of the sports apple, with the launch of their very own special Olympic hub as means of promoting the games, teams and athletes.
Who did you cheer for this Euro cup and who will you cheer for during these Olympics? Do let us know and keep posted for more interesting news.
