Women's World Cup Final helps Twitter to record figures

Twitter records new milestone figures following Women's Football World Cup Final

Social networking site Twitter has announced a new record has been set on the micro-blogging service with a staggering 7,196 tweets being sent per second.

The figure, which equates to 431,760 tweets in a single minute, was recorded last night at the culmination of the Women’s Football World Cup Final that saw Japan defeat tournament favourites USA in a penalty shootout.

"New Tweets per second records! End of the #wwc final: 7196 TPS. And today's end to the Paraguay/Brazil game is now 2nd with 7166 TPS," Twitter’s own official feed announced.

Despite trailing Facebook in terms of unique users and facing new competition from Google’s new social network Google+, Twitter continues to mark itself as the most influential social network helping to break news stories across the globe with more than 600,000 people signing up to the service in a single day last week.
