1.7 Million Tweets Sent About #Brazil2014 World Cup Draw

1.7 Million Tweets Sent About #Brazil2014 World Cup Draw

The draw for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil took place Friday and, one by one, as the countries were drawn from their pots and placed into the eight groups, Twitter began to buzz. And buzz. And buzz.

Especially when it came to the little matter of the so-called “group of death”.

Of course, the group of death is something of a relative term, as global football has a ranking system and one nation’s group of death is another’s walkover. Still, the U.S. joining Germany, Ghana and Portugal (meaning Cristiano Ronaldo, arguably the greatest player in the world) in group G certainly ruffled a few feathers, and England’s chances of moving forward from a group D that includes Italy, Croatia and Uruguay is looking a trifle suspect.

All-told, some 1.7 tweets were sent about the #Brazil2014 World Cup draw on Twitter, with activity peaking on the USA’s admission into group G.
