Lions' win at Dallas a hit on Twitter
Since the Lions 34-30 win at Dallas was one of the most compelling NFL games on Sunday, perhaps it stands to reason it was high on the Twitter-ometer too.
Based on fans’ tweets, the Lions’ come-from-behind win had the most excitement of all other games played last Sunday.
The Detroit-Dallas game had 28 tweets a second on average for the whole game — more than nine times the total of the least-tweeted game.
This isn’t just a guess this is done through research by Rice University and Motorola Mobility using SportSense, a computer program engineers created to analyze NFL fan tweets in real time.
The least excitement was generated by the Tennessee Titans-Cleveland Browns and Miami Dolphins-San Diego Chargers games.
If you’re not on Twitter or don’t follow games on Twitter give it a shot. It adds a whole new dimension to game coverage.
