Venting Olympic NBC Disgust @ #NBCFAIL on Twitter

I doubt NBC had any idea their bad coverage of the London Olympics was going to get them hammered badly by social media, like Twitter, which has grown much more powerful since the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

After the horrendously bad way NBC covered the Opening Ceremony a Twitter hashtag of #mattlauershutup popped up. Apparently I am not the only one who found Lauer's commentary insipidly, intrusively, ignorantly boorish.

I imagine there is a Twitter #hashtag devoted to bashing the NBC Olympic coverage embarrassment named Ryan Seacrest, but I've not seen that one.
