And here's the introduction video for #WorldCup on Twitter.

#WorldCup Centre

Twitter is again using its main potential (its being realtime) for another global event - 2014 Brazil World Cup. In addition to Hashflags, Twitter introduced the #WorldCup centre where you can follow all the actions. It includes a scoreboard, photos and the teams (except for Iran - the only team with no official Twitter account) and the news.

UPDATE: Now it's 32 verified Twitter accounts for 32 countries at 2014 World Cup as Iran now has a verified account.

You can also easily vote for your team. Plus, you can use twitter to change your profile picture to your country's flag! And you can do it right here:

In addition to #WorldCup, you can also keep up with the news using #WorldCup2014.

Other than watching the games, how will you follow your team during World Cup? Which team are you supporting? Who do you think will win it?
