2012 Olympic tweets surpass these of 2008 Olympics


The 2012 London Olympics kicked off last weekend amidst all the hoopla and fanfare. Expectations were great and the organizers certainly lived up to the expectations of the people who wanted a grand opening. In the next couple of weeks, we will witness what man can achieve when he puts his heart into what he is going to do.

This time Olympics showed that technology has indeed grown leaps and bounds since the last event took place in Beijing 4 year ago.

According to Twitter, the tweets that have been registered about the Olympics have surpassed those of the 2008 Beijing Olympics. Twitter added that two-thirds of the American contingent are on Twitter and the build up towards the 2012 Olympics has overshadowed that of the 2008 sporting spectacle.

Twitter has partnered with sporting events in the past. They partnered with NASCAR that began last May. Then a month later, Twitter partnered with the Euro 2012 soccer championships.

But clearly, the Olympics are the biggest sports event that they have done, as it is considered as the Holy Grail of all sports events.

Let’s see what the final number is and compare it yet again with the 2016 Olympics.

I bet that this would again trump this year’s number.
