Social media impact of Texans talk extends to Tennessee

Posted: Updated:

The Texans are not only the talk of the town in Houston but the team is trending on social media all over, including on enemy territory in Nashville, Tenn.

The game play and replay is far from over, even hours after the players left the field.

Even if you weren't at the game, you probably felt the excitement.

Long before the scoreboard read 38-14, many Texans fans knew the game would end with the team walking away with 4-0 won-loss record.

"Oh, I thought it was a cake walk! If we would've lost to the Titans today, it would've been a shame," said a fan.

"I've been going to the games for like 3 years now and so I was like we're going 4-0 for sure," said a fan.

"I had no doubt we were going to win," said another fan.

You could feel the excitement and the confidence, even if you weren't at the game.

"It was just electric like everyone was so excited about the plays and our defense was on top of everything," said a fan.

Texans fans were following every move, every play, every touchdown on Twitter. Talk about real time communication on a mass level.

"I read up on YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, I'm a fan so anything that's Texans, I follow," said a fan.

"I have the Texans app on my phone, I'm a nurse so I can't always have Sundays off to watch the game so I can check the app and get real time coverage on plays and the score," said a fan.

The second the team sealed the deal, "Texans" became the number 10 trending topic on all of Twitter.

The Houston Texans posted the following message on Twitter: "With our 13k twitter post, we announce #Texans beat titans 38-14 to extend their unbeaten record to 4-0."

"Texans made me happy," tweets Miguel Banda.

"Proud to be from Houston," retweets Dylan Reeves.

"I see there are a lot of Texans groupies on Twitter," tweets Jervourris Mitchell.

Yes, Jervourris; yes there are.

Nick Schenck, director of digital media for Sports Radio 610 AM monitors social media during every game and says Texans fans are always so proud to cheer on their team and social media gives them an outlet to show their support.

"Even though people are watching the game in different locations, they all react simultaneously so what social media does is give people that collective sense of witnessing the same thing together as a fan base," said Schenk.

Quarterly updates are posted along with great action shots from the field on the Houston Texans official Facebook page.

Elizabeth Johnson posts "here we go again" along with her Texans t-shirt.

Dianne writes "way to go, we love our Texans, see y'all in the super bowl"

Brenda posts a pic of the final score and writes "I couldn't have said it better"

And Geary posts "I have been a Houston Oiler/Tennessee Titans fan for a long time now but I feel it is time to pick another team...perhaps my loyalties need to remain in Houston!"
