What is this?
This is the home page of the 2012tweeps. If that means something to you – you know what to do next.
If it doesn't …. read on.
You’ve got either NO tickets or a crappy football ticket, right? Maybe you’re a very frustrated TeamGB competitor or a relative of one. Pissed off with LOCOG? Angry at Seb and his ‘cronies’? Can’t stand the fact that all the “super-rich and corporates” are getting ALL the tickets? Gravy train. Dispatches Channel 4. Sepp Blatter. Corruption. Olympic lanes. Grumpy taxi drivers. The Daily Mail. Taxpayers money!!!
Ooo-er … calm down dear. Hate this country and all it represents? Want nothing to do with the Olympics after your application for a £50 ticket for the 100m Usain Bolt Final got binned? Did your 4 applications (naughty!) totalling £20,000 produce a fat zero? Pah! Given up months ago?…. sorry getting a bit carried away…
Anyway, take a look at this… Note that this is on the OFFICIAL tickets site of London2012.com. Bookmark the link. It's important.
Message: you too can be like our Paddy. Get it?
Good. EU law means they can buy from us (about 1-5% of tickets in Round 1 ballot went outside UK), but equally, we can buy from them. And we have.
Want some of this?
Now we've got your interest – we want to help you. Here are some things you can do
- Ticket news tends to break on twitter. To find out who is selling and where you could do worse than search #2012tweeps.
- We also have a lovingly curated twitter list (actually two!)
- If you don't like twitter … have a look round the forum - but you should really be using twitter.
- A lovely man called @Kevin_Plsm runs an automated ticket tracker service. It's very good … read about it here.
Finally, you'll want to join our Olympic Ticket List - the biggest database of people with olympic tickets in the world. Well – it might be the only such database .. but still we've got over 200 people with a lot of tickets.
What else can we find here?
