The London Olympics of 2012 will be the Games of social media. Yes, facebook (and MySpace – remember that?) were very popular during the 2008 Olympics. But with the rise of Twitter and “Fan Pages” to dominate the scene, fans are able to interact, connect, and track the every move of their favorite athletes like never before. For the professionals, whoever wins Twitter will win the money-list.
With this new level of accessibility, the athletes take much better control over their image and their own message, and whoever can attract the most fans will garner the most sponsor attention. The athletes are already Tweeting a lot of great pictures and updates from their camps in Knoxville and France, and here’s links to all of their Twitter accounts so that you can follow them.
For ease, we’ve created an easy-to-follow list that you can subscribe to. Heck, you can even follow this list if you don’t have a Twitter! Subscribe to the list here on Twitter by clicking the “Subscribe” button on the left. Check out the feed below, and see a list of Twitter accounts for the whole Olympic Team.
