People use social media as a second screen when they are watching stuff on TV like sports. They use it to check the sentiments of others online or comment on their own about what is happening on TV.
This is why social media is such a great place to see the emotions from people when they watch sports for example. Yesterday, Tiger Woods, the renowned former golf champion for many years won the Masters, which is a major golf tournament and Twitter was lit with reactions from people and celebrities alike.
This was Tiger Woods first major title win since 2008 and his fifth Masters win in total. Since Tiger Woods has always been known as a dominant player before his fall in 2009. His triumphant victory in the Masters is one people like where a former champion gets their grove back and dominate like they never left.
Celebrities and regular people alike commented about this win and it was all congratulations and admiration.
