Fans react to Germany's win in World Cup final

NEW YORK (AP) -- It won't be what Brazil's fans will remember, but the first World Cup semifinal is the most tweeted-about sports event in Twitter history.

The social media company says there were 35.6 million tweets sent out during Germany's 7-1 demolition of Brazil on Tuesday afternoon. That easily beat Twitter's previous record of 24.9 million set during the Super Bowl in February.

The most tweets came when shots were whipping by the Brazilian goaltender. Twitter says there was a flurry of more than 580,000 tweets per minute right after Germany's goal made it 5-0, the last of four goals to come in quick succession.
