FIFA World Cup 2010: How Twitter reacts to every game

By Alan Ng - Jun 14, 2010

Have you been following the World Cup with friends on Twitter? We have something pretty amazing to show you now, which displays how Twitter reacts during live matches.

As reported from CrunchGear, the Guardian has created a Twitter ‘mash-up’ flash feed which neatly displays messages from Twitter during matches at the World Cup in South Africa.

The feed analyses all the various tweets around the world at that time, and mashes them together to create a dynamic effect.

Take last night’s game between Germany and Australia for example. You can see that Twitter goes a bit crazy every time a goal is scored, or when the red card occured towards the end of the match. We take our hats off to the Guardian for creating this.

Take a look yourself at the page here and let us know your thoughts on it.
