Twitter is where all sports conversations are happening, and in India, cricket fans roar the loudest.

From July 1 2020 to July 1 2021, there were over 75 million conversations about cricket on Twitter in India. Another big cricket tournament is here, and Twitter is, once again, the fans’ stadium of choice. As people dive head-first into international cricket action, the GOATs (Greatest Of All Time) will be taking over Twitter, quite literally.

To mark the grand tournament, Twitter has introduced special GOAT dedications for all the competing teams.

CricketTwitter is always bustling with conversations as fans are live Tweeting matches, celebrating their favourite moments, or lauding the best on-field performances. Other times, they’re engaging with star players via Q&As, and these players make sure to reciprocate the love that they receive from fans. That is why, not only do on-field champions make their mark in everyday #CricketTwitter conversations, but retired legends like Sachin Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid also keep fans talking. In fact, fans are often found debating who the real GOAT of Indian cricket is, and the opinions are a mixed bag.

While fans continue to support their favourites, they can also follow them as Topics on Twitter. Topics use machine learning to insert subject-related Tweets into people’s timelines. Some of the Topics that cricket fans can follow on Twitter include Cricket, Rohit Sharma, MS Dhoni, Hardik Pandya, Jasprit Bumrah, and more.

Twitter also launched several custom emojis that one can incorporate in Tweets to connect with the strong cricket community on the service. #TeamIndia, #India, #IND will render an Indian flag emoji whereas, #T20WorldCup will trigger a trophy emoji, so go ahead and #LiveTheGame and guess what, there’s emoji for that as well.
