Tweets to light up Rio’s Christ the Redeemer

Twitter is launching a rather original operation, in collaboration with the Archdiocese of Rio de Janeiro. The goal: to light up the famous Christ the Redeemer statue with the colors of the two World Cup finalist nations: Germany and Argentina. Until July 12, the day before the final match of the FIFA World Cup, Twitter users can vote on the colors that will light up the famous monument the longest. All they have to do is tweet a message with the hashtag of the operation, #ArmsWideOpen, and that of their favorite team: Germany (#GER) or Argentina (#ARG). The tally of the votes will determine how long each team's colors light up the statue from 7pm local time on Saturday, July 12.
