Rowan 'Bean' Atkinson most tweeted topic during London Games Opening Ceremony
London, July 30 (ANI): The most interesting part of the Olympics Opening Ceremony was not who lit the cauldron, nor even the Queen's acting debut, it was Mr. Bean, according to Twitterati.
"The biggest spike in Twitter conversation during the Opening Ceremony? When Rowan Atkinson, a.k.a. Mr. Bean, appeared in a hilariously memorable homage to the Olympians of Chariots of Fire," The Telegraph quoted Andrew Fitzgerald, Twitter's manager of editorial programming, as saying.
The actor appeared with the London Symphony Orchestra, playing a single note on the piano during a rendition of Chariots of Fire.
London 2012 is the first Games to see Twitter play a major role, with the Olympics mentioned by more than 10 million users since Friday's ceremony.
British founder of the World Wide Web, Tim Berners-Lee, was also the subject of millions of tweets after he made a special appearance during the ceremony.
He tweeted a message that appeared on screens around the stadium, reading: "This is for everyone". Since he posted the message, it has been retweeted 10,246 times.
Twitter calculates spikes in conversation using a tool that tracks how many tweets mention a particular topic each second. (ANI)
