One of the most coveted trophy of the summer is up for grabs. No, not the FIFA World Cup, but the first ever #WorldCup Golden Tweet award.
The FIFA World Cup enters the round of knock-out games, the time has come for another competition to officially starts: The Golden Tweet award, #WorldCup edition, will reward the UK’s top Tweeter of the WorldCup. The game is on!
Twitter UK will be analyzing data to identify the biggest Tweets based on the number of Retweets they get from within the UK. While the contest officially started on July 1st, all tweets related to the World Cup since it began on June 14th will be taken into account. After the World Cup Final on July 15th, the most popular tweets of the tournament across five categories will be crowned Golden Tweet winners.
The five categories are:
- The biggest fan
- The biggest player
- The biggest team
- The biggest brand
- The biggest pundit
Each winner will be presented with a stunning trophy featuring a golden iconic Twitter bird.
Here are a few of the early contenders selected by Twitter:
Imagine England actually won the World Cup man. We'd all be jobless. The country would descend into utter chaos. Sinking pints for 30 days straight listening to nothing but Three Lions and World In Motion. They'd have to set up hammocks in the pubs.

Warming to Gareth Southgate. He’s like a neighbour who’s moved in recently and seemed a bit dull at first. Cuts his grass with scissors. Then one day, he offers you a can over the fence. A quick chat about the darts. He’s alright, our Gareth. Good lad.
