With all NFL teams and a majority of players having an official presence on Twitter, fans can get closer to their favorite teams and athletes with these three steps:
- Search: All 32 teams of the NFL are on Twitter. Search for coaches, players, fans or hashtags like #SuperBowl or #steelers.
- Follow: Click “follow” for breaking news, behind-the-scenes stories, starting lineups, exclusive photos and insights from the teams.
- Enjoy: You don’t have to tweet to enjoy Twitter. You can just take in the experience, or voice your passion for your team. It’s up to you.
While the season kicks off today, NFL players and fans have been in full-on football mode for a month, sharing their journeys, one Tweet at a time. Since Super Bowl XLVI, NFL chatter on Twitter has seen major spikes in activity.
