The London 2012 Olympics have begun today after a fantastic opening ceremony  watched by over 1billion people around the world. The London 2012 Olympics is the first social Olympics so not only will there be lots of people watching live on television and in the stadiums but for the first time ever you can personally support your favourite athletes by Tweeting them.  @TwitterUK  have told us that  there were a total of 9.66 million mentions of  the opening ceremony from the start of the ceremony to the end. They have also Tweeted that in just 24hours of the London 2012 Olympics there have been more Tweets than the entire Beijing 2008 Olympic which is just astonishing as Twitter had over 70 million users then.
