Whether in London or beyond, those of you feeling a little lost without #FROW seats might just be one step closer to the games than you thought. With the number of users growing from six million to 600 million in just four years since Beijing’s moment in the spotlight in 2008, Twitter has become the number one source to get that inch closer to well, pretty much just everybody. Taking a gold medal of its own @London2012 will be the first Olympic games where social networking is where you want to get the lowdown. With no time left to lose, with just 140 characters for each, i-D online presents our top ten Olympic tweeters to watch out for. Just hit follow.

@usainbolt: Usain’s twitter is co-ordinated with the colours of the Jamaican flag and he won’t say no to striking a paticular pose. Catch him if you can
