This is for everyone – how London 2012 was Tweeted [infographic]

Mr Bean - the most tweeted moment of the opening ceremonyA good infographic here from Fiasco Design summing up how Twitter was used throughout the London Olympics, which certainly lived up to their promise as the world’s first social games.

It illustrates how Twitter  played such a major role in the London 2012 Olympics from the 10 million who mentioned the opening ceremony, the popularity of Mr Bean and Sir Tim Berners-Lee, the rise of #NBCfail and the millions of mentions of our brilliant Team GB and the athletes.

It is all here. The highs as well as some of the lows such as Tom Daley’s Twitter troll moment. Although that didn’t hold Daley back he was the big winner on Twitter at London 2012.

As truly the first major world sporting event where Twitter has been at the forefront of reporting and TV coverage with @BBCSport fully using the social network to measure the nation’s reaction to different sporting and cultural events.

Meanwhile, sites like The Guardian have collated vast amounts of data based on Twitter usage and mentions providing a wealth of information surrounding the “feeling of the games”.
