StatSheet, which oversees a series of Web sites that offer reams of stats for fans of every sport, has added to the mix with STAT.US, which the company is calling “the world’s largest sports-focused Twitter network.”
STAT.US utilizes StatSheet’s proprietary “artificial intelligence technology” and database of “more than a billion statistics” to bring live, in-game updates to fans on their favorite players and teams.
According to StatSheet, STAT.US has both team and player-specific Twitter accounts covering the NFL, MLB, NBA and NCAA college football and basketball. STAT.US Twitter accounts already have more than 250,000 followers who are updated with live game scores and important plays as well as pre- and post-game analysis.
The statistics for STAT.US are provided by StatSheet’s official statistics provider, The Sports Network (TSN).
As part of STAT.US, StatSheet has also launched what it describes as the first Twitter “Fantasy Tracker.” The company said that would enable fantasy football managers “to quickly follow the individual players on their team and keep tabs on their fantasy roster’s performance on game day via Twitter.”
STAT.US users receive live play-by-play, scores and statistical updates for the individual players and teams that they track within their existing Twitter feed.
According to Robbie Allen, StatSheet CEO and Founder, “At StatSheet we are all about using technology to create the best possible experience for fans. STAT.US fits in perfectly with our existing network of over 400 team Web sites and Android and iPhone applications and helps us take the next step in improving the in-game experience for our users.”
