Twitter App Gets World Cup 'Timelines' in New Update
New for World Cup:The new features mirror changes Twitter has made to its web interface, which allow users to follow Twitter timelines for specific games featuring tweets by relevant fans, journalists, analysts and more. A couple days ago, Twitter also re-introduced "Hashflags", which automatically insert flags from the countries participating in the World Cup when certain hashtags, like "#BRA" for Brazil, are used.
The World Cup Timeline is where all the action happens. In addition to Tweets from your network, you will see relevant Tweets from teams, players, coaches, press, venues, and celebs.
