A new Twitter record was set during the Women’s World Cup final match between the United States and Japan with users posting a 7,196 tweets per second. This fact combined with the outpouring of social media reaction from notable personalities, both in the sports world and other spheres, became the featured story in my newest @Page2 column.
I initially had another top for my column (which will run in two weeks), but sometimes when big stories happen you have to switch things up on the fly. There’s always a little bit of pressure when you’re writing something editors are waiting on to post, but there’s also specific sense of accomplishment you feel when you file a piece you’ve worked to turn around quickly. It takes me back to my days of daily deadlines when working in the newspaper world.
