 Twitter has launched its #WorldCup features which include World Cup Timelines, Customized Profiles, The World Cup of Tweets, Hashflags and lots of localized tweets.

Twitter World Cup Timelines
Twitter has launched 2 official World Cup hashtag timelines: #WorldCupand #WorldCup2014, click or tap them to view them. In the World Cup timelines, you can view the World Cup related Tweets from people in your group of friends, Twitter network, along with relevant Tweets from teams, players, coaches, press, fans in the stadiums and celebrities.
The match timeline shows Tweets about specific matches that are happening in real time to help you keep up with the latest goals, saves, fouls and more — even if you’re not near a TV. And if you want to only view Tweets with photos and videos, just choose the photos-only view.
Make Your Customized World Cup Profile
With this feature, you can customize your Twitter profile with the pictures of your favorite team on your profile and header photos. All you need to do is choose your team and then get custom profile images, header photos, real-time scores and highlights.

What’s coming for Pakistanis?
Pakistan’s Football isn’t playing in FIFA World Cup, it doesn’t mean Pakistanis aren’t crazy about the game and the event. A good news is that Twitter’s exclusive World Cup features are now available in Urdu too. To access the Urdu features you will need to change your account’s language to Urdu.
