Usage of the words "nazi" and "nazis" shot up on Twitter during the USA versus Germany World Cup game. Surprised?

More precisely, though, they shot up when Germany got the upper hand over USMNT. From the minutes leading up to the game, "nazi" had small rumblings in the Twittersphere, but it slowly began to grow as the game progressed. The word was used damn near 25 times a second when Germany scored against USA, a few minutes after 1:00 pm EST. 

They were comprised of tweets like this:


Sports. Bringing the world together.
