Twitter Inc., making a strategic push into online programming, won a deal to show Thursday night National Football League games online, a person familiar with the matter said.

The social-media company was said to be bidding against a slate of heavyweights including Verizon Communications, Yahoo Inc. and Amazon.com. Facebook dropped out of the bidding last week, according to a person with knowledge of the discussions who asked not to be named because the talks were private.

This is a step in the right direction, I would hope that one day all the games are available via free stream, especially the games that are on cable only. (Legal streaming that is).

I think legal forms of streaming will be the almost only way of getting content in the future. Most people want their content when it suits them, not when it happens to come on a set time on TV: Sporting events will of course be on a scheduled time to be watched live but most other shows and programming will be on demand.

Yeah this is lame. I csnt stand Twitter and all this bs. Social media is getting too important to people in this country. I just want to watch football. I don't want a stupid Twitter account. Irritating.

Twitter, Color Rush, Thursday WorkDay/Night...

F**king Goodell...

Could we just get NFL on one freaking day, and have a special game of the week late that night or on the following night?!?
