Twitter Adds World Cup Section

by David Brooks | 11.06.2010
Twitter have added a new section to its site for the World Cup featuring the Teams, Fixtures and related Tweets. There is also an added bonus of a new flag feature designed especially for the World Cup, simply use the hash tag with a country afterwards (e.g. #eng) and you’ll be greeted with a flag image! There is also a world cup ball image if you use the #worldcup tag. See below for a quote from the Twitter blog or go straight to the World Cup Section on Twitter.

Using live widgets, real-time search, and Top Tweets (updates that are currently catching the attention of many Twitter users) we’ve put together a special site to capture the spirit of the World Cup and it’s already pulsing with activity. Fans have a unique opportunity to connect with players, teams, and brands using Twitter to join the matches in a new way. We also are providing a list of suggested accounts to follow during the tournament and a World Cup theme for your profile page. We’ll leave it up to you to learn how to do the neat little trick we’re calling hashflags.
