Hilarious #WorldCup Aggression on Social Media
Most will argue that watching the game is the best part of the World Cup experience.
But I fervently disagree. The best part, is without a doubt, the social media browsing before the game, during the game – and of course, after the game.
World Cup fans certainly voice their World Cup sentiments in the cafes, the bars, and the streets. But on social media – the timid, quiet ones join in as well – and my. oh. my – I didn’t think they could be so aggressive. Memes are created. Satirical articles unfold. Social media users will design, write, and comment all the things you would have never imagined designed, written, and commented.
There was a total of 25.6 million tweets during yesterday’s legendary Brazil – Germany match. And that’s just Twitter.
Where do you start browsing? The World Cup social media response is all over the place, I’m not sure where to start. Do I look-up #WorldCup on Twitter, move on to Facebook, and then jump over to Instagram? I don’t want to miss a thing! #FOMO (otherwise known as the Fear Of Missing Out).
To join in on the World Cup banter, I head over to Swizly’s exclusive World Cup site. They aggregate content from all over the web as long the content is tagged with the #WorldCup hashtag.
Try tagging your own social media posts with #WorldCup and head over to the Swizly page to see them show up. Be quick though, the #WorldCup hashtag has been so abused – it’s incredible that the Swizly page is still rolling all posts in smoothly and continuously.
Ps. If you haven’t already noticed, World Cup browsing is NSFW.
