Cool Graph Shows How Twitter Is A Roller Coaster Of Emotion During Penalty Shoot-Outs

This World Cup has been the most bizarre to date and because of the lunacy that has unfolded at almost every stage it will be fondly remembered. It has been a tournament of records too, taking the relationship between live sporting events and Twitter to new heights, with Brazil’s round of 16 match against Chile setting a new record for tweets per minute.

The most surprising relationship between the tournament and the social media platform has come during penalty shoot-outs, of which there have been quite a few.

So if you've ever wondered how Twitter behaves during a penalty shoot-out, then this should give you the answers that you desire. As you can see, Twitter goes deadly quiet during a player's run-up before exploded once the kick is taken. You can almost see people sitting on the edge of their seat!
