Tweets from Super Bowl XLVIII Players and Coaches

The players and coaches are also getting geared up for the Super Bowl, although it looks like they’ve spent the last week in a social media moratorium of sorts. Also neither Peyton Manning or John Fox have official Twitter accounts. So the Seahawks have already won the social media engagement game.

The Winner of the Super Bowl XLVIII on Twitter

It was close, but according to TwitterSports, the Seattle Seahawks have edged ahead

It was fun browsing the Twitter airwaves for content and information about SuperBowl XLVIII. But it was also an eye opener to realize that with some topics, people just prefer contributing their own unique voice to the conversation instead of resharing the content of others. This should especially be the case during the game itself when people will have plenty to talk about and opinions to share. Hope you enjoyed!
