Twitter users flock to follow sad empty Olympic seat
The sad and lonely thoughts of an empty Olympic seat have captured the imagination of Twitter users, who have flocked in their thousands to follow the laments of the unoccupied chair.
Almost 17 000 social networkers are now keeping up to date with @OlympicSeat, who offers musings such as “Where did it all go wrong? They say it’s the organisers fault, but I blame myself”.
As London Games organisers try to explain the embarrassing empty spaces in Olympic venues, @OlympicSeat has a more personal take on the issue.
“My mother wanted me to embark on a more stable career path, become an Ikea chair for example. But I felt I was destined for greater things,” it moaned.
