Even before the World Cup happened, sports commentary on Twitter is huge. Check out http://twittersportsnet.com - the flood of sports related content on Twitter is enormous.

Aside from twitter being generally stupid, what the hell is the point of tweeting about the world cup?  It's not like it's not already covered on every sports outlet.  Do people get out and stand on their roofs and scream to the neighborhood when their sports team scores or does something of note?  No, then why the hell do they feel the need to do it on the internet?  This culture is so vane.  It reminds me of ancient Rome.

Actually, yes. Come see how loud my apartment complex is during a Lakers game. They DO yell and scream.

I don't think it's just the World Cup. It's World Cup, E3, the Webbys, the Lakers, an earthquake last night... There's A LOT of stuff going on this week that attracts heavy Twitter traffic.

 

edit: Bunch of Prop 8 hearing stuff going down, too.
