Twitter Map Shows Entire World Engaged In Germany-Algeria World Cup Game

World CupTwitter proves to us that the World Cup does, indeed, get the entire planet revved up for soccer.

This Twitter map shows the amount of activity on the social media site talking about the Germany-Algeria Round of 16 game on Monday. Germany won a thriller 2-1 in extra time, with Algeria scoring in the final minute as it sought the tying goal.

Notice how the entire globe lights up during goals scored by both countries and when the game ends. Also, notice how despite being the most populous country in the world, there isn’t a single flash in China.

The map for Tuesday’s Round of 16 game featuring the United States and Belgium will be incredible. The U.S. hasn’t reached the quarterfinals of a World Cup since 2002.
