There were many moments during the 2012 Olympic Games that made viewers smile. Triumphant gold medal winners, graceful bronze medalists, media interviews with the best in sport and fabulous opening and closing ceremonies all brought out the positive tweets from UK viewers during the 2012 London Olympics.
This infographic comes to us from one of the Games’ sponsors, EDF Energy. You might recognize the organization as responsible for lighting up the London Eye according to the Twitter sentiment of Olympic viewers for the past two and a half weeks.
Now the energy company has released an infographic looking at the moments that elicited the most positive tweeting from the host country’s many hundreds of thousands of tweeters.
The Games themselves saw a 64 percent positive sentiment reading since the beginning of the torch relay. That means that over 6 of 10 tweets about the Games were positive in nature.
Jessica Ennis winning gold in the heptathlon was the most beloved moment of the Olympic Games, pushing the needle on positive Twitter sentiment up to 90 percent.
It rose again to 82 percent when tennis star Andy Murray won gold, and again when the Brownlee brothers won gold and bronze in the triathlon.
