Euro 2012 Sets New Twitter Sports Activity Record
Another major international soccer (football) tournament … another Twitter record for tweet activity.
Sunday’s Euro 2012 championship match — a 4-0 Spain victory over Italy — set a new record with 15,358 tweets per second (TPS). Twitter says activity hit that level when Spain scored its fourth goal. Overall, the final match produced 16.5 million tweets around the world.
The new TPS record breaks the mark set in April during the Champions League semifinal between Barcelona and Chelsea.
