Twitter data generated during the State of Origin matches between New South Wales and Queensland will be collected from the 9jumpin iOS/Web app to produce real-time stats showing which state is getting the most support online.

Dubbed Tweet of Origin, the data will be collected from the official Twitter hash tag #Origin and re-produced into a meter that shows how many fans are tweeting about NSW or Queensland. (See image.)

Fans will also have a choice of 16 multiple camera angle replayed moments after the action has been broadcast on the Nine Network. For example, users can search for tries, goal kicks or their favourite player.

The multi-camera angle feature is available on the Web and iPhone versions of the app for all three State of Origin games.

The Nine Network has also opened up its vaults and provided selected clips from past State of Origin matches to 9jumpin. This means that fans can watch classic moments from the 1980s and 1990s with a range of camera angles and replay options.

According to 9jumpin director of convergence Rebecca Haagsma, the Nine Network wants the app to become its leading digital platform.

“We’ve formed a new team of content/digital operations specialists from Mi9 and Nine. Aligning these two teams means we have been able to develop historical footage replays and the multi-camera angles the Origin fans love so much," she said in a statement.
