As we get closer to the Olympics, it’s not only the athletes who are waiting to perform; it’s those taking part in the ‘Socialympics’ – the use of social media during the event.
If you’re a regular user of Twitter, you’ll already know that watching a televised show whilst refreshing your feed definitely enhances the whole experience. We’re going out on a limb here but Twitter can cater for all your Olympic needs. Whether you’re searching for insightful and well-informed details about specific events or a witty take from some of Britain’s top comedians, Twitter is there for you.
Even better, if you haven’t booked a fortnight off work to follow the action, you can use Twitter for immediate updates and final results or if you’re stranded in the middle of London due to Tube delays, it’s often quicker and more efficient to check official transport operator Twitter accounts rather than websites.
If you fancy more of an insider’s view on the action, you can always follow one of the athletes taking part – cyclist Chris Hoy and heptathlon star Jessica Ennis are both regular users of the social networking site.
