Social Television

The amazing this about social media is that it has changed the way many including myself watch television. As not only can you share the experience with people in the room, but also with friends, family members and even strangers across the globe.

Case in point, last December I live-tweeted Nelson Mandela’s memorial and funeral. In January I live-tweeted Super Bowl XLVIII. And earlier today I live-tweeted while watching USA v RUSSA ice hockey game. Each of these major events brought out a range of emotions throughout the broadcast and it’s been great to chime in and share my thoughts about what is happening in real time instead of waiting to reflect and write a blog post.

That said, below are my tweets and retweets from yesterday’s shootout thiller (spelling mistakes and all). It was all beyond exciting, so can’t wait to see how things progress during the tournament; especially with American hockey player T.J. Oshie who I’ve developed a massive crush on. Why? It’s not so much his looks but his ability to deliver under pressure. I find that incredible sexy. So now I’m stalking him on social media. Oh isn’t technology great? lol
