Twitter plays an important role in trending discussions and ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 is going to be a hot topic for almost two months.
Taking advantage of this, the popular micro-blogging site will offer regular updates, scores, tweets and schedules on the upcoming cricket matches through its exclusive #CWC15 timeline. After serving as the primary go-to destination for FIFA World Cup-related discussions last year, Twitter is doing the same for ICC Cricket World Cup that will kick off this weekend.
Twitter announced the new launch on Wednesday along with details of its new timeline feature. Users can stay up-to-date with scores, commentary and images from every match. To take advantage of this, users can search individual match scores by using hashtag #TEAMAvsTEAMB. For instance, #INDvsPAK will bring live scores and updates of the ongoing match between India and Pakistan. Similarly, users can get information about other matches like #AUSvsENG and more.
Twitter will also show country flags for respective teams as it did with FIFA World Cup last year. Users can follow teams and players by clicking on the country flags or player names to get latest updates and show support.
"Given the millions of cricket fans who are on Twitter, we wanted to create something that would let you follow and participate in this global event," Twitter wrote in its post.
There's also tournament timelines under hashtag #CWC15, which will bring latest tweets, photos, match schedules from the Cricket World Cup 2015. The new ICC Cricket World Cup timeline is available on both desktop and mobile. Update your Android and iOS apps to enjoy the new features while on-the-go without missing any bit.
