Adding Awesome to College Football Saturdays

While the rest of the world (and that’s honestly not stretching the truth all that much) is enamored with the World Cup … two announcements have been made very quietly this week that will change the way we watch college football.

First, Twitter began supporting animated GIFs in its timeline. The process of posting them is as simple as adding a photo to a tweet.

Second, Twitter announced the acquisition of SnappyTV, one of the more popular tools for clipping and editing of live TV.

OK, you’re asking … so what? Isn’t this supposed to be a post about watching college football?

Well, let’s think about it. It means that now, as you’re watching games and using your phone as a second … or third … or fourth screen, you’re going to see a whole lot more of this in your Twitter timeline.

And this.

And, yep, this too.

In other words … college football Saturdays on Twitter just became even more awesome.
