The above image might not make a whole lot of sense, but it’s something called a heat map, and the bigger and brighter the spots get, the more activity those big, bright dots represent.

The dots in this instance represent Twitter activity before and after John Brooks‘ game-winning goal in the 86th minute against Ghana during the opening match for both teams at the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.

It turns out that a few people on Twitter had something to say about the goal.

The above image is a static one, taken about a minute after the goal.  Below you’ll see the animation showing before, during, and after. It’s pretty fun to watch.

Take a look:

Earlier, we had shown you how actual, physical crowds reacted to the goal. Now you can see how the Internet denizens reacted. They seem to be similar.

The video sort of looks like how the outbreak of a disease would look as well. Let’s call this disease “World Cup Fever.”
