Mind-Blowing fact: there were over 900 million mentions of the Copa America Tournament on Twitter

Copa America Tournament

If the statistic is true (and there’s no reason to believe otherwise – heck, it’s on the internet!), then there was an average of 30 million daily tweets between June 13th and July 13th this year that mentioned the Copa America Tournament in soccer (football). Stat. Blows. Mind.

According to the same study, there were 7,196 tweets per second during the 2011 FIFA Women’s World Cup Final. Apparently, only a few came from Barack Obama.

More amazing statistics:

  • Lionel Messi of FC Barcelona acquired 6.6 million “likes” on his Facebook page… in one hour.
  • A stadium in Kansas City can handle 18,000 WiFi connections, enough for every patron.
  • Not related to soccer but interesting nonetheless: there will be 6 billion mobile connections by the end of the year.

Here’s the infographic itself. Hope it’s not spoiled for you – there’s plenty of awesome information left to view. Click to enlarge.
