Recent Twitter trends for African nations in the World Cup
So far, only two-and-a-half World Cup groups have played matches, which means that out of the 6 African teams in the tournament, only South Africa and Nigeria have played. Both Algeria and Ghana will play in a matter of hours, but Cameroon will wait another day, and Cote d’Ivoire another day still. Accordingly, how often are global Twitter users mentioning specific African countries? Quite often, it seems, if a game has already occurred. Today, the term ‘Nigeria’ saw a greater spike in Tweets than the term ‘South Africa’ did yesterday.
