Video Exclusive: The Nation’s Build Up To The Super Bowl

It’s no secret that Americans are passionate about the Super Bowl.

 

From #deflategate to a triumphant Seattle return, most of us have been waiting on the edge of our seats for tonight’s Super Bowl XLIX. This anticipation showed through on Twitter and Instgram, with over 24,000 posts generated in the 15 minutes leading up to kickoff.  But the MOST interesting social media data shows us that this year’s fans are fluid– it’s not just New England and Seattle that’s getting in on the action.

 

Watch and see for yourself the pulse of #SB49 buildup. Blue dots mark positive mentions, and red mark the negative.

And stay tuned, as we’ll update you with live trends throughout the game!

 

As you can see, the majority of Tweets and Instagrams show positive sentiment, even across states that have no horse in the game (we’re from Redskins nation, so we feel you :) ). Plus, the conversation flow didn’t just stay high, it stayed consistent, averaging at 25 tweets per second for those glorious and nail-biting 15 minutes before the game. Check out the total pre-game social reach below:
