After much anticipation from football fanatics, Twitter aired Thursday Night Football live last night after the partnership with the NFL was announced in April. Twitter has been referred to as the “real-time newspaper.” It is the social network for breaking news updates and social chatter. And now with this added streaming experience, Twitter can add live event destination to the conversations for which it has already become famous.

So was it a hit or a total bust? It was a total HIT! Users loved the viewing experience and here is why:

  • The game was free of any major glitches
  • The quality was excellent and rivaled HD displays on much larger screens
  • It was very easy to find the game since it appeared at the top of the Moments section on the Twitter app
  • Viewers have access to special sideline coverage before and after the game on Twitter’s live video app, Periscope

As a huge football fan and social media addict, I had to watch for myself. The ability to watch the game and the live stream of tweets at the same time was awesome. Here’s what it looked like:
