Quotes

THE 2014 World Cup's first draw—a dull, goalless game between Iran and Nigeria—happened on June 16th, bringing to an end a "draw-drought” of 12 games. The match was conspicuous in an otherwise high-scoring tournament, which so far has seen 44 goals, or 3.14 per match. It is proving to be one of the most exciting World Cups of recent times, including shock results such as the Netherlands' 5-1 win over Spain, the reigning champions. Such excitement bucks the modern trend. Until this year, the tournament had been losing its kick. A draw-less run such as this has not happened in World Cup history since the first competition in 1930, when only 13 teams played just 18 matches, all decisive.

Yet the #BringBackOurGirls campaign bucks the trend of a quick rise and fall, notes Ethan Zuckerman of the Centre for Civic Media at MIT. This is because it was driven first by a Nigerian twitterstorm (begun more than a week after the girls went missing) that got a second wind when picked up by the American and international media. The crossover came around May 7th, when—partly fuelled by Michelle Obama joining the campaign—more retweets came from... Continue reading "
