Social networking and particularly twitter itself has paid a massive part in the Olympics, with coaches, millions of fans and even the athletes themselves not being able to resist tweeting their comments throughout the Olympics.
A new record on the social networking site was reached as Usain Bolt had his name mentioned in 1,300 tweets, many fans using the site to express their immense joy with the Olympic results.
Others used the site to talk about their disappointment after missing out on medals, cyclist Mark Cavenidish couldn’t help but to tweet his sadness on missing out after so much hard training by tweeting "Gutted. After 250km, less than a minute to 20guys. My guys were INCREDIBLE & there was nothing more we could do. Victims of our own success."
The mass use of social networking, texting and phone apps saw Games Chiefs asking users to cut down on their output after GPS signals used to track the men's cycling road race were hampered by the volume of traffic.
I think it is such a good thing to use social networking to show our athletes our support but unfortunately there are some people who wish to be negative towards them such as a 17 year old who was issued with a harassment warning by the police after sending Tom Daley malicious tweets following his defeat in the men’s synchronized 10m Platform diving.
