I am proud to say that for the 1st time ever, chess is more popular than cricket, and even Sachin Tendulkar on twitter, in India!
The #1 hashtag of all of India is #AnandCarlsen and #3 is #FWCM2013. #ThankYouSachin is #2. Over 1 billion people are expected to follow this World Championship between Anand and Carlsen. On behalf of the organizers, IM Lawrence Trent, GM Ramesh RB, and IM Tania Sachdev, a big thank you to all of you for supporting this event.
