Twitter Chatter During the Super Bowl

Those who know me know I'm a computer geek... and I use Twitter. If you don't know what Twitter is you can think of it like a virtual cocktail party where people type short messages about things that might interest others who follow their messages.

Anyway, back to the topic at hand, the New York Times published a cool "word map" of terms that Twitter users were typing during the Super Bowl. Click here to see it.

After clicking on the link, notice the scroll bar at the top of the page. If you click and pull it across the page you can see the frequency of commonly used words in Super Bowl related messages over time.

Congratulations to the Steelers on winning a record sixth Super Bowl.

Big Ben was awesome and nearly perfect. Santonio was brilliant, too... but I still think that James Harrison should have at least shared the MVP award with Holmes.

I read that folks in Pittsburgh have taken to calling Harrison's interception the Immaculate Interception!

I enjoyed the game, but it was a bit too close for comfort there at the end!

Go Steelers! Let's get a 7th next year!
