One of the things I was looking forward to was to see how watching Football would be changed by Twitter. This will be an on-going experiment as the football season unfolds. My first experience was less than “Wow”, as I work to dial in on the information stream that meets my already crowded 13″ laptop screen. Already having a Fantasy Football client and NFL Gameday website on the desktop leaves little room for Tweetdeck, Seesmic or Mixero.
Being a NY Giants fan, I started off by doing a search for “Giants” this netted some OK results, but I found that I also got a lot of “noise” about the San Francisco Giants. I then searched my contact list for anyone who was associated with the NYG and created a group, this also provided some interesting results, but didn’t really give me what I was looking for. There was one thing that I did realize though, there were a LOT of people using twitter on Football Sunday. Now all I need to do is figure out the right tools and how to get the right amount of information to ensure that I don’t experience the game only through twitter.
Have and idea to share, perhaps you’ve got the answer. Tell us what it is.
