A few weeks ago my fiancé and I were waiting for takeout at a restaurant’s bar. It was Sunday and of course there were multiple football games on. While I was checking in my beer on Untappd, I noticed out of the corner of my eye a massive fight had broken out in one of the games. The players were brawling off the field and into a wall! I had no idea what just happened (my fiancé was glued to the Colts game) so I searched on Google News to see what happened. No dice. Since it just happened there were not any news stories yet.
I searched for the team names on Twitter. Bingo!
I found out what happened through real-time tweets and reactions to the fight. Even the official Twitter of the Carolina Panthers tweeted out a reaction.
