Pro Bowl to let players tweet during game

Thursday, January 26, 2012 - 6:10pm

The Pro Bowl will hit the Twitter-sphere this Sunday. The NFL is getting social, allowing players to post tweets during the game.

Two computers will be set up on each sideline, and the league will encourage players to tweet to fans, teammates, and even opponents during the event

The NFL says it's relaxing the policy for the fans.

Players will tweet using the hashtag “#probowl.”

During the regular season, the NFL forbids player tweets from 90 minutes before a game until they've completed their media obligations.

The Pro Bowl can be seen this Sunday right here on NBC33.
