Super Bowl XIV is less then two weeks away and it is definitely going to be a very exciting game, except for me because my favorite team New York Jets couldn’t make it to the Super Bowl two years in a row.
Nevertheless, the Super Bowl XLV game between Pittsburg Steelers and Green Bay Packers is definitely going to be a blast. Though you can follow all the updates on your TV and also on NFL.com, it would be more interesting to share insights with your friends too.

According to Twitter, during last years Super Bowl, 40% of the tweets were related to the game while it was in progress and almost 50% were related to it after the game was over. Last year also saw a lot of tweets for the FIFA World Cup 2010. So will this year be any different? Let’s hope and see.
Right now there are no official hashtags for Super Bowl XLV, but it might be #superbowl or #superbowlxlv or even #SB45. Have fun following the Super Bowl XLV with your friends on Twitter.
