Want to know how much #WorldCup noise your team is getting? There’s an app for that
When England returns to the pitch tonight in their World Cup match against Uruguay, footy fans will now be able to track their team’s noise on Twitter, via a new app from social innovation agency Harkable.
The app tracks how much noise football fans (by nation) are making on Twitter during the World Cup.
Although England may have been pipped to the post during Saturday’s match against Italy, Harkable’s app reported a different result as England fans scooped 53% of Twitter activity throughout the match.
The app sifted through the 7.2 million tweets that occurred during the game on Saturday and will monitor all others up to and including the final on July 13.
Harkable is a Shoreditch-based social innovation agency. Their World Cup 2014 app follows a real-time content feed it created for Euro 2012 that pulled in content from various news sources, blogs and social media.
