USA 0-1 Germany: Thomas Müller Goal Sparks 'Nazi' Tweets


Before Thomas Müller beat Tim Howard to record Germany's 1-0 World Cup Group G win against the USA, the Twitteratti were already making plenty of "Nazi" references.

Regressing counted 30,209 in total, or 3.4 "Nazi"s per second, were used during the Germans' 1-0 win, and when Müller scored the Nazi references predictably spiked.

Twenty-five tweets per second featured the word "Nazi" after the Bayern Munich forward struck in the 55th minute.
