Twitter has won a deal to broadcast Thursday night National Football League games online, Bloomberg reported Tuesday, citing a source familiar with the matter.

Twitter (TWTR) was bidding against a number of companies, including Verizon Communications (VZ), Yahoo (YHOO), and Amazon (AMZN) to win the deal, Bloomberg reported.

Facebook (FB) dropped out of the bidding last week, according to the report.
