Twitter Looking To Become ‘Digital Hangout’ for Sports Fans
Social Media is not what we remember it as 4 or 5 years ago. Video on social media was virtually non-existent and the notion of using social media for business was a complete afterthought. Fast forward to 2016 and you can’t escape video content. For example, take a look at Activ8 Media leader, Cory Gregory’s Twitter and Instagram pages. Every day, Cory is uploading video content for his followers to connect on a level where they feel as if they are right there with him. The content he posts; from training footage to business tactics, are all valuable information.
Twitter Inc. is striving to do the same by quickly becoming a sports hub for fans to receive their latest sports content, and even live games. On Monday, Twitter announced that it will stream out of market Major League Baseball (MLB) and National Hockey League (NHL) games once a week. They now have signed deals with four major sports leagues, one being the National Football League (NFL) where they will have the rights to stream 10 NFL Thursday Night games. Twitter is now trying to become “the local sports bar” for the online sports world. Aiming to be a place where people not only discuss sports, but watch them as well, the future of the content world millennials are receiving is well beyond that of years passed.
