Twitter gets abuzz with Brazil versus Columbia match

MUMBAI: The battle that saw Columbia being sent home by the five time world football champions Brazil, has turned out to be the second most tweeted match of the 2014 FIFA World Cup season.

There were a total of 12.4 million tweets during the Brazil vs Columbia quarter final match that pitted Brazil in the semi-finals against Germany. The first most tweeted match so far has been Brazil vs Chile which witnessed 16.4 million tweets.

The most tweeted moments of the match  were when David Luiz scored the first goal  in a free kick receiving 2, 59,352  tweets per minute. The second most tweeted moment was when Brazil defeated Columbia in a 2-1 finish receiving 2,23,004 tweets per minute. The third most tweeted moment was when James Rodriguez of Columbia scored a lone goal for his team on a penalty kick. This goal received 1,78,477 tweets per minute on the micro blogging site.

The most mentioned player of the match was Brazil’s NeymarJr. This is not surprising since the Colombian defender Juan Zuniga kneed the 22-year-old in a crunching tackle and the Barcelona player was stretchered off in agony in the closing minutes of the game.


He has now been ruled out of the game due to fractured vertebrae, disappointing fans all over the world. The other two most mentioned players of the Brazilian team were David Luiz and Thiago Silva. The top three mentioned players of the Columbian team were James Rodriguez, Juan Cuadrado and David Ospina.
