2012 London Olympics is said to have quashed trade at Green King’s central London pub but at the same time it helped increase Green King’s sales in the suburbs. According to Green King’s report published today, 2012 London Olympics had a minimal impact on the company’s performance, which had been expected by its officials. However Green King’s sales increased despite the wet weather in the summer.
The popular microblogging website Twitter blocked the account of a reporter based in Los Angeles who works for a British daily. On Friday, the man included the email address of the NBC Olympics president, Gary Zenkel on his tweet and urged people who followed him on the site to write to Zenkel and criticize the network’s airing of the Olympic Games. However, the move backfired as the episode became a popular enough topic for Twitter conversations on Monday all over the globe.
