Confetti printed with fans’ tweets falls onto the field in Miami after Chiefs victory: #SuperBowl 2020
Did your tweets make it to the Super Bowl?
Social media has become a huge part of all sports, especially championship games, and now tweets are getting a spotlight on the field as well.
Leading up to the 54th Super Bowl, Twitter Sports informed fans that while they might not be able to make the trip to Miami, their words can. The league planned to have tweets that used the hashtag “#NFLTwitter” scattered throughout the classic confetti.
Can't make it to the big game? Now your Tweets can!

From the initial tweets being posted back to Twitter, which reads a bit like Twitter-inception, it appears the league filtered the messages by the team.
Fans who were in attendance at the game posted photos after the clock read 0:00 and the Chiefs were officially Super Bowl champs.

Not just any tweet made it out to the field or the stands. The tweets being caught by fans or being part of player’s field snow angels are all positive messages.
