Rob Green, Beckham’s Face, Obama, Twitter & the World Cup

So what was trending on Twitter in the UK an hour or so after Rob Green’s howler last night in the England football game with the USA?

trending No “Rob Green”…………..although I’m sure he’d made an appearance shortly after miss.

Checking out the Tweets related to David’s expression, there were a couple of photos circulating showing him disconsolate.

One just with David:Beckham And the other showing Barack Obama unable to contain his delight:

Obama Whether the Obama pic is a fake or not, I don’t know.

But it does go to show that visuals/photos can spread like wildfire on Twitter if they’ve scored a critical hit.
