Tweet That: Who to Follow on Twitter During the Super Bowl

January 2014

If you are watching the Super Bowl from the comfort of your home, but still want a mass fan experience, you need to have Twitter open during the game. During last year’s Super Bowl, Twitter broke its own record for most tweets sent per second (a record which has since been broken). For Broncos fans looking for instant reaction during Super Bowl XLVIII, follow this list of people who are also obsessed with 140-character morsels of knowledge.

Peyton Manning’s Head: There are at least two accounts dedicated to our quarterback’s face, and both are worth checking out: @PeytonsHead and @18forehead18.

The Reporters: Getting to the Super Bowl is, well, a lifetime achievement for a sports reporter. Follow these folks for behind-the-scenes access:

The Party Line: Jim Saccomano (@broncos_sacco) joined the Broncos media staff in 1978 and is set to retire as vice president of public relations after the Super Bowl. The unofficial Broncos historian sends his tweets in groups, but provides a unique perspective on the both Broncos and sports media.

South Stands: Some of the best Broncos coverage from a fan’s point of view comes from southstandsdenver.com. While site creator Colin Daniels (@southstands303) and his sense of humor are not for everyone, he serves as a good choice for fans looking for a ringleader.

The Old Guard: Former Broncos Hall of Famer Shannon Sharpe (@ShannonSharpe) is not shy about his Broncos fandom and has appeared on the CBS pregame show in Denver helmet and gloves. Denver’s Super Bowl MVP running back Terrell Davis (@Terrell_Davis) shares his Broncos pride on the NFL Network and NBC Sports Radio.
