London 2012 Olympic Twitter archive

Over the course of the London 2012 Olympic Games I put together a Storify of tweets relating to the events and the debates and the media stories that people were linking too. It wasn’t systematic process, there’ll be lots that slipped through the net and this is a manual compilation without the aid of APIs or other labour saving devices.

 

I’m posting it here so I can find it again in the future, but it is of course available to anyone to scroll through. It starts (at the very bottom) with Aiden Burley MP’s famous remarks about the opening ceremony…

 

 

…and at the time of writing finishes with a link to Fatima Whitbread’s comments on whether the Games will really ‘Inspire a Generation’.
