As a mobile journalist this event would be perfect to cover. Sports are continuous and ever changing, and getting the highlights of the game published as fast as possible is ideal.
Journalists can live tweet game coverage in real time from their phone, filling in and explaining all the details to Twitter, Yik Yak or Facebook. They can also post videos and pictures they took with their phones of the game to social media, making their articles/ posts more exciting and engaging.
This type of event would work well in a mobile format because sports are instantaneous, continuous, suspenseful and entertaining. It is something that very easily can be fit to be tweeted out a continuous rate as it is happening, and then even after the game is done, would be a great article to have paired with video or pictures taken from the game highlighting the good and bad for readers to see.
It’s also fun to watch Stony Brook kick some basketball butt. Go Seawolves!!!
