It’s been called the most social Games in history — and this year’s Olympics is definitely living up to the title. Even before the opening ceremony had begun, Twitter had already confirmed that there were more tweets about the London Olympics than there were for the entire duration of the Beijing Games. So far, not one but two athletes have been cut from their country’s Olympic teams for inappropriate tweets, and a UK journalists’ critical messages about US Olympic broadcaster NBC have caused widespread controversy after his account was banned by Twitter.

In case you’re still wondering who to follow for updates from London, we’ve made it easy: for the duration of the Olympic Games, we’ll be curating this Storify stream with highlights from competitors, spectators and social media users around the globe.
