World Cup Fever: Support Your Team With Twitter ‘Hashflags’ and More


In the spirit of the World Cup which begins tomorrow, Twitter has activated ‘hashflags’ that display flags anytime you tweet a country’s short name with a hashtag.

To make it easier to follow the games and events surrounding it, they’ve also created a special edition of their native apps on smartphones and their website that lets you follow tweets about the games in real time from players, coaches and commentators.

The website has Twitter avatars and themes available to show your spirit for whichever team you support. It’s literally World Cup fever!

The hashflag for Nigeria is #NGA. Now go raise your hashflags!
