I think its safe to say the Olympics just ain’t ready for Twitter. Between tape delays and time differences and racism and trolls, the world simply cannot handle it. Got kids in England getting arrested, athletes getting kicked out after waiting 4 years to get there. Its like in Back to the Future when Marty plays Johnny B. Goode and the whole audience is like “What the fuck just happened?” and Marty goes “I guess you guys aren’t ready for that. But your kids are gonna love it.” Thats Twitter and the Olympics. Maybe a few Olympicses (Olympiads? Olympic games?) from now we’ll be able to handle the entire planet chiming in 140 characters at a time, but not this time around.
Ironically enough, the Olympics has been absolutely gold for me on twitter. Because I love all the racism and trolling and shit. Tweeting about the gymnastic chicks last night was like the most fun Ive ever had on the internet. I feel like the Olympics are basically over now but follow me for some top notch immature Olympic coverage. @KFCBarstool
