Super Bowl Sunday is finally here! Time to turn on the TV and… go online? Really? These days, it’s hard to imagine any major sports event without online communication. Social media in particular has become a vital part of the experience. During last year’s game, users posted 24.1 million Super Bowl related Tweets – and that number is on a steep rise. Fans, journalists, and sports professionals all use the internet to get in touch with the world while watching the game.
