Ratings for Twitter’s first NFL stream are in

(WISH) – The ratings are in for Twitter’s NFL stream.

Twitter’s stream of its first NFL Thursday night football game was a hit with the people who watched it, but the number of viewers paled in comparison to those who tuned in to the game on TV.

During an average minute of the game, 243,000 people were watching the stream via Twitter.

By the same TV-style measurement, 15.4 million people were watching on CBS and the NFL Network.
