Pichai stated it seems the world was searching for just “one thing” as Lionel Messi‘s Argentina won its third World Cup title by defeating France in a nail-biting final.
Google Search isn’t the only place where records were created during the FIFA World Cup final.
Elon Musk, who acquired Twitter in October and was present in the stadium watching the match, stated that during one of France’s goals against Argentina, the microblogging site recorded 24,000 tweets per second — the “highest ever for World Cup!”
The tech billionaire termed the final a “Duel in the Desert” and agreed with millions of fans who all said they couldn’t have asked for a better game.
