The World Cup final was watched by an awful lot of people, but let's face it -- football isn't everyone's cup of tea.

But whatever you think about football, you have to admit that this visualisation of how the world watched it just fascinating.

Twitter used data on how often, when and from where people tweeted during the final, and placed all of the data points on one map. In total 618,725 tweets a minute were sent during the final, with 32.1 million tweets being sent in total - only slightly down from Germany's crazy demolition of Brazil in the previous round.
