Lots of people are live tweeting about sports in real time. The Associated Press has more: “According to a study by the Perform sports media group, 26 percent of U.S. fans use social media platforms to follow their favorite sports, up from 15 percent in a similar survey in 2011. One-third of those fans say they use Twitter to follow sports, trailing Facebook (89 percent) and YouTube (65) — based on 1,002 online interviews of adults conducted during February and March.”
