World Cup 2010 Twitter additions


Twitter has introduced two great features for its users to join in the celebrations of the 2010 FIFA World Cup being held in South Africa.  It has created a Twitter World Cup site which tracks tweets relating to specific countries, matches and anything World-Cup related.

Secondly, to liven up and colour tweets, simply add a hash tag (#) before the first three letters of a country's name and its flag (hash flag) will display on tweets when updated.

The full list of hash flags are:

Algeria #alg - Argentina #arg - Australia #aus - Brazil #bra - Chile #chil - Cote d'lvoire: civ - Cameroon #cmr - Denmark #den - England #eng - Spain #esp - France #fra - Germany #ger - Ghana #gha - Greece #gre - Honduras #hon - Italy #ita - Japan #jpn - Korea Republic #kor - Mexico #mex - Netherlands #ned - Nigeria #nga - New Zealand #nzl - Paraguay #par - Portugal #por - Korea DPR (North Korea) #prk - South Africa #rsa - Serbia #srb - Switzerland: #sui - Slovakia #svk - Slovenia #svn - Uruguay #uru - United States of America #usa World Cup #worldcup will display a little soccer ball.
