It seems that sports fans and journalists aren’t the only ones utilizing social media in the Olympics. The L2012 Pool Camera is an underwater camera that is based at the bottom of the pool, and yes it uses Twitter to tweet photos of Olympic swimmers in action. The L2012 Pool Camera’s description reads: “I match the world’s best swimmers, stroke for stroke. They speed along on top. I race along the bottom, always looking up – and always wet.”
The camera was first used in July 27 and its first tweet (with its first photo seen above) says,”In position under Lane 4. Join me underwater for a different perspective on #Swimming at #London2012.” So far, the L2012 Pool Camera has tweeted 17 times since the games started. However, the L2012 Pool Camera isn’t alone. There’s also the L2012 Stadium Cam, a camera that can tweet photos of track and field athletes.
