WASHINGTON – As if the NCAA basketball championships weren’t engrossing enough, expect your social media feeds to be inundated with online friends’ play-by-play and color commentary.
For many, live-tweeting on Twitter or posting on Facebook while watching a game on TV or in person is a way of sharing the experience with people in their social networks.
With so many people taking part in office pools and trying to track game scores on a real-time basis, using social media can help keep you up to date.
But it can also cause confusion to followers who don’t realize that your “OMG!!!!” is a reaction to a jaw-dropping dunk.
Thursday morning, it appeared the hashtags #MarchMadness and #NCAA were getting a lot of action.
Some people even warn their followers of an impending live-tweet explosion, so they can be temporarily muted.
Of course, you can get all the scores from March Madness on WTOP.
