4.8 Million Tweets Sent During Champions League Final [INFOGRAPHIC]

Just how social media-crazy are soccer fans?

4.8-million-tweets crazy.

The infographic below created by UEFA, European soccer’s governing body, illustrates just how passionate social media-savvy sports fans were during and before the Champions League final this past Saturday.

It might’ve been hard to top last year’s Twitter activity surrounding the Champions League final – users sent 32,097 tweets-per-minute at the peak of the game.

But this year’s match proved superior in terms of social buzz: at the final whistle, Twitterers sent updates at a rate of more than 117,000 tweets per minute. Yowza.
