As competition between social networks to show
and Snapchat are the big winners when it comes to the World Cup.
The two social networks said Tuesday they're partnering with Fox Sports to provide exclusive highlights from the 2018 World cup in Russia. Twitter will not only feature every goal scored from all 64 games just moments after they happen, the platform will also air game previews, recaps and live programming from Moscow's Red Square featuring US soccer greats Landon Donovan and Alexi Lalas.
Snapchat will offer similar content from
coverage by producing "Our Stories," videos featuring exclusive behind-the-scenes highlights, graphics and reactions from soccer fans across the globe.
