How You Can Spend Your Super Bowl Thanks to Twitter

By Allison Boccamazzo January 30, 2013

Super Bowl Sunday is in three days people – which means you will be likely digging into some awesome snacks and appetizers, catching all of the latest and greatest million-dollar ads and best of all, cheering on your winning team. While we prepare in the real world, how are people faring in our digital equivalent – a.k.a. behind the screens of our computers? As it turns out, tons of people and businesses are taking to Twitter to promote their business and ways for fans to interact this Sunday, February 3rd  while watching the game.

Rapper and actor Ludacris took to Twitter today to promote his newest movie in the Fast and Furious series. He even used the social media site as his initial platform to break the news, tweeting, “You heard it here first! Watch the #SuperBowl on Sunday to see the first look of @FastFurious!”

Now while you’re checking out Luda in his upcoming flick, you need to be munching on some awesome recipes. Bon Appetit Magazine has got you covered with six chicken wing recipes that will apparently “carry you to sweet, sweet #SuperBowl party victory,” as tweeted only a couple of hours ago.

But of course, some of us have actually not given up yet on our healthy New Year’s resolutions. If you’re one of these enviable souls with phenomenal will power, then SHAPE Magazine offers some more health conscious options, having tweeted around the same time that followers could join them on other popular social media site Pinterest to get some healthy snacking options for the big game.

And last but not least, what’s at the top of every person’s mind and perhaps one of the most highly speculated aspects of the event, are the advertisements and Super Bowl commercials. You can gear up for what you’ll be seeing on TV soon by checking out Forbes view on the topic, where it tweeted earlier today, “Is it worth spending $4 million on a #SuperBowl commercial?”


It’s truly awe-inspiring to see just how prevalent social media is that with a few typing of the keys, one can be brought to an entire world of digital suggestions for some of society’s most anticipated events. Where we once used to search independently for resources and points of interest, it still seems like a phenomenon that we can actually find everything we want and need about virtually anything all in one place.

So with that, enjoy the Super Bowl this weekend!
