Brazils record defeat at the hands of Germany in the World Cup semi-final sent Twitter into overdrive, with the social network beating all records of activity for a sporting event. A total of 35.6 million tweets were sent during the match on Tuesday that saw the Germans thrash Brazil 7-1 — the host nations worst loss in its 100-year footballing history. The previous record had been held by the American Super Bowl in February, which saw nearly 25 million comments unfurl on Twitter, the social network told AFP. The fifth German goal by Sami Khedira just 29 minutes into the match sparked the most comments, generating more than 580,000 tweets in the space of a minute.
