GREECE is the Word! Our Global Greeks Tweet Greece's Amazing World Cup Victory!

Tuesday was a very special day for Greece and Greeks around the world! 

For the first time in its history Greece's National Team - Ethniki Ellados - 10 years after its incredible Euro 2004 win, qualified for the top 16 of the World's football greats in the World Cup in Brazil!

It was fantastic to see our Global Greeks from all over - from Media Mogul Arianna Huffington to up and coming Wimbledon Tennis Champion Nicholas Kyrgios  - take to twitter to share their joy.

We thought we would share a small selection of those tweets with our readers...starting with, who else but Arianna...
