MOST COMMENTED

[SOCIAL MEDIA WATCH] With 35.6 million tweets, the Brazil-Germany match was the most-discussed single sports game ever on Twitter, smashing the previous record of 24.9 million tweets set during the 2014 Super Bowl.

Sami Khedira's goal in the 29th minute -- a record fourth German goal in six minutes and the fifth goal to cap the fastest five goals ever to start a World Cup match -- set a record for tweets per minute (580,166).

The previous record for most tweets at the 2014 World Cup was set during the Brazil-Chile match that went to a shootout: 16.4 million tweets.
