On Tuesday morning, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell revealed that Thursday Night Football games will live stream on Twitter this coming fall, confirming that Twitter had won the bidding for digital streaming rights. […] The NFL says that the live streams will be free, but it’s still unclear how viewers will access the streams on Twitter’s interface. What we do know is that the rights package Twitter acquired includes in-game highlights of Thursday night games and Periscope broadcasts from teams before the games. – Jacob Siegal, BGR
