Twitter (TWTR) Stock Rebounds as FIFA Claims Two Records

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Twitter  (TWTR) rose Wednesday amid FIFA's claim that Germany's 7-1 evisceration of Brazil in the semifinals of the 2014 World Cup produced two Twitter records.

The international soccer organization counted 35.6 million tweets about the game on Tuesday, which would make it the most tweeted sports event in the social media company's history. FIFA said the previous record was 24.9 million for the Super Bowl in February, in which the Seattle Seahawks thrashed the Denver Broncos, 43-8.

FIFA also claimed the record for most Twitter messages about a topic in a minute. Users sent out 580,166 tweets about the game in the minute after Germany took a 5-0 lead. Sami Khedira's scored the goal at 5:29 p.m. local time in Belo Horizonte.
