Twitter wins kudos from fans watching its NFL livestreaming debut2
Some complaints were made about the layout of the livestream, as a few viewers asked to see their own feed instead of the curated tweets that were shown during the contest. Others had suggestions, asking for a picture-in-picture option. Thursday's game was the first of ten that will be shown Thursday nights on Twitter, which means that there is plenty of time for some of the suggestions to be implemented in future games
Many were happy with the look of the livestream, which was close to HD quality throughout the game. And the game was easily found inside the Twitter app's Moments tab. One interesting note, having a Twitter account is not a requirement for watching the NFL games on the app.
It was a very good start for Twitter's NFL livestreams. The next four games will use CBS' coverage, while the last five will feature NBC's Thursday Night Football broadcast team.
