CBS debuted a new format for the 2016 NCAA Tournament Selection Show, which went two hours long. Twitter didn't take kindly to the new format, and CBS' worst fears came true during the show.
The brackets were leaked on Twitter during the show.
We've embedded the leaked bracket below. With the official bracket released, the leaked bracket was indeed accurate.

The original leak seems to have come from Twitter user RICHIE, whose account is now gone.
CBS tried to get the most out of the selection show by making it two hours long. But viewers only tune in for bracket reveal, which viewers could find out via Twitter. Some were happy to get the leak early.
