Olympics organizers tell spectators to minimize tweeting and texting as they botch the live TV feed

Turns out that's precisely the case, as the organizers are now advising spectators now to minimize tweeting, Facebooking and texting whenever possible, in order to save those precious bits and bytes for the live TV feeds, where we already have some real troubles.
Not the people's fault that NBC and the rest decided to stream everything live over the Internet this time, hoping that it will work out, yet the organizers apparently are convinced that everyone has to restrain their sharing obsession for the common good.

That’s funny... this doesn’t make any sense.... just this morning I saw on the news that they are resorting to giving away free tickets to events to active military and teachers to fill up the stands with some people. So looks like the 5 people tweeting from the event is stealing all the juice free from NBC. Seems like this Olympiad is not doing so hot....

Surprise,surprise. Turns out that if they can't make money on it, they don't want you doing it. I'm completely disgusted with what the Olympics have become. Nothing but a giant money orgy to push products and stuff the pockets of corporations. And the amateur athletes??? Now they are most multi millionaires professional athletes like the spoiled Kobe who sees himself as a God.
