Other partners include The Weather Channel, the National Basketball Association, Warner Music, and CBS.

The NFL and Twitter
said Thursday that the deal will let football fans interact with NFL video content created specifically for Twitter — on computers, tablets, or mobile devices.

Content will include in-game highlights from NFL Network’s “Thursday Night Football” and clips from other regular season and postseason games, plus news, analysis, and fantasy football advice.

The NFL said this is the first time it has partnered with a social media company.
