There's a well worn phrase that says that sport is the opiate of the masses and that is more than true when if comes to football...or soccer, for our American friends. Football fans can be rabid in their love of their team and, with teams like Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea in England and Barcelona and Real Madrid in Spain,it's hardly surprising that they are some of the biggest and most profitable sporting teams in the world. Indeed, their fans are spread across the globe. So, it’s reasonable to assume, that those fans are always on the lookout for ways to keep up with news about their favorite teams. FootyTwits is a sports application for Twitter that gives you complete and up to date news about your team including team selections, news and live scores via tweets received.
FootyTwits is the perfect Twitter application for football fans because it lets you see everything from live scores, squad details and news without having to switch from one app to another. It is the first Twitter app in the world that lets you select your favorite soccer team(s) and see a live feed of all the related tweets being written about them at the time. This way, you’ll be able to “see” live matches through Twitter and get the latest news, scores and rumors as well as all the up-to-date witty banter and news - literally at your fingertips. But it's on match days that FootyTwits really shines turns into a whole different experience. You can use the app to find like-minded football fans, see live scores and read what they write. For those of you out there who like to bet on your team you’ll have privileged access to another important stream of information before splashing your cash and making your bet.
It's hard to believe that someone hasn't put an app like FootyTwits together before now. Football fans are some of the most avaricious sporting fans in the world and search out all the information on their team on a daily basis - especially on game day when finding out whether your team is winning or losing. It's easy enough finding that information out if you live in Europe but its not so easy to find out how The Gunners or Barca are doing if you are in the middle of Africa - or the Mid West of the US, if it comes to that. FootyTwits is as simple as pie to use and delivers all the relevant tweets about your favorite team as soon as it happens and in one place.
