Twitter use turned out to be very dangerous for Olympic athletes and for fans.
Scandals involving Twitter and the 2012 Summer Olympics in London are starting to pile up. Even before the Olympics started Greek Triple Jumper Papachristou was excluded from the games because of a racist tweet.
Yesterday Swiss soccer player Michel Morganella also tweeted a racist comment and got expelled from the Olympic games.
A teenager was arrested in London after posting a disturbing tweet to British Olympic diver Tom Delay.
Twitter usage also already caused issues with broadcasting a cycling event as the fans along course tweeted to much and took up all the bandwidth.
Last but not least. A reporter's Twitter account got suspended for criticizing NBC's Olympic coverage. Well, not exactly for that says Twitter. He posted personal email addresses of NBC bosses.
My tip for Olympic athletes. Do not read tweets and do not post them until your done with your events.
