Big move by Twitter. It's now streaming Wimbledon live: Notice the new URL structure: twitter.com/i/live

@rrhoover i just have two guys talking about tennis??
@richbtig @rrhoover yeah see my comment below - doesn't actually seem to show the match, just the commentary.
@rrhoover Freaking awesome... imagine when you have the NFL game there and under it feeds from players live from periscope!

@rrhoover Good article on Recode on the Twitter Wimbledon livestream (an incomplete "test" experience) ahead of the NFL deal http://www.recode.net/2016/7/6/1...
This is what Twitter should exploit. Live events with video and feed. Get this on the Apple TV ASAP!

It's just commentary now (with a link to an ESPN page that doesn't work in the US), but I think this is a good sign of what we'll see when the NFL streams start this fall. And that's awesome.

@film_girl yup. excited for it! 🐥📺🙌
@film_girl can't wait for it #NFLonTwitter
@film_girl Agreed. This could also work for sports with fledgling fan bases in various countries, like cricket. Seeing pros and commentators explain what's happening and why without interrupting the viewing experience for informed fans.
Isn't this just a step up from radio though? RE: Wimbledon - You don't seem to be able to watch the match, just a video of the commentators haha. Also its a few minutes behind the live game - and with Twitter focusing on real-time, live events - it may need to get up to speed here. I like the idea though and the tweet stream next to it is cool.

@bentossell Agreed. Who wants to "watch" commentary? I was a bit bummed. But it's a big step in the right direction.
Imagine this will move the needle in a big way on the advertising front.
