Twitter becomes medium of record in moments of sports controversy by Bruce Dowbiggin

Just after the two referees in the end zone had signalled different results for Seattle’s “Hail Mary” pass on the game’s last play, players in the game vented their rage in tweets. Packers offensive lineman T.J. Lang, part of a unit that gave up eight sacks to Seattle, was blunt. “@TJLang70 F**k it NFL.. Fine me and use the money to pay the regular refs… Any player/coach in Seattle that really thinks they won that game has zero integrity as a man and should be embarrassed.” (This tweet was RT’d more than 84,000 times.)
