Twitter live stream of NFL a hit


(CNN)--Twitter's live stream of its first NFL Thursday  night football game was a hit with fans.

The game between the Jets and Bills was widely praised on twitter by viewers but TV  viewership was still the greatest.

During an average minute of the game over 15 million people watching on CBS  and the NFL Network.

About 243-thousand Twitter users checked in.

Then NFL  made the deal with Twitter in hopes of attracting viewers who may not have cable or who use social media regularly and value mobility.
