Football – or soccer if you’re in North America – has some 3.5 billion fans across the globe, making it far and away the most popular sport in the world.
That popularity has quickly bled into social media. Indeed, football’s adage that it’s “played by millions, and watched by billions” could equally be applied to Twitter, with the top clubs (and athletes) each boasting millions of fans (and tweets). But which teams are faring best?
Did you know that 347,222 tweets are sent each and every minute on Twitter?
What if I told you that in just 60 seconds, 108 new accounts are created, 1,458,333 Twitter search engine queries are performed, 4,398 unique site visits are generated, $1,744 is earned in advertising revenue and 700 video links are shared?
Katy Perry, who became the first person to reach 50 million followers in January of this year, maintains her position as Twitter’s most-followed individual, with a lead that is now closing in on 2.5 million followers over second-placed (and former number one) Justin Bieber.

The company also revealed the launch date for iOS 8, which is September 12th.
With so much happening, the conversation quickly turned to Twitter. How did we react?
