Saturday’s World Cup match between Chile and Brazil had millions of fans fumbling with their mobile devices.
In the minute after a Chilean player missed a penalty shot, 388,985 tweets were sent. That topped the previous tweets-per-minute record of 382,000 set during the last U.S. Super Bowl. Overall, 16.4 million tweets were sent during the Brazil-Chile match, Channel News Asia notes.
According to TWTR, as of Friday, more than 300 million tweets had been issued during the World Cup. TWTR noted that this year’s World Cup is “already becoming one of the most talked about events on Twitter of all time”.
Despite the heavy World Cup tweeting, TWTR stock fell more than 1% in Monday morning trading.
