Germany-Brazil Game Most Tweeted Sports Event Ever

Twitter says that the Brazil semifinals game against Germany Tuesday afternoon was the single most tweeted sporting event in history.

The tweets peeked when Sami Khedira made it 5-0, which reached 580,166 TPM, Twitter’s metric for tweets per minute.

This is a sports fan’s relief, to know that Miley Cyrus’ performance at the VMAs only reached 306,100 TPM.

This is what the tweets looked like in real time, with audio from Ian Darke.
