Very cool interactive graphic for World Cup Twitter Mentions

Twitter has released a pretty cool interactive graphic on how countries mentioned other countries.

In other words, what countries did certain countries mention the most outside of their home country. Make sense?


I find it interesting that the USA was mentioned the most by Iran... and it seems to be by an overwhelming margin.

The USA mentioned Mexico more than any other countries which is pretty predictable. 

What do you guys think?

Surprised by how popular the USA is in the WC.

I read something during the Cup that a lot of people liked the USA because they were kind of underdogs and they liked the way they played.

I'll take it.

I asked this on Twitter and got this answer from a random person.....

"Twitter in Iran is filtered they use proxy/VPN to connect. The proxy/VPN servers are in USA, France, Germany"

I'll take their word for it I guess.
