If you don’t fancy your Olympic chances at the long-jump or the sprinting or that Scottish thing where they roll balls along an ice rink, then you should consider tweeting for Britain.
It’s part of a sweet little game you can play on the Olympic 2012 website. Okay you don’t get a medal but… you do get the satisfaction of propelling your country up the league tables by visiting the website and signing in with Twitter. So far Brazil is winning. We’re in second place, but I don’t imagine we’ll stick there for long if all of the Americas start tweeting.
Fortunately Twitter is banned in China – phew.
