` Mo Farah's 5000m win at the Rio 2016 Olympics, in tweets

Mo Farah's Olympic (Rio,2016)5000m final victory, in tweets

Four years on from the London Olympics he's only gone and done it again - the double double 5000m/1000m.

Mo Farah's "mobot" victory gesture. Once again, I tracked the tweets using the twitter streaming API (search terms #gomo,#motime,@mo_farah,#mofarah) before, during and after the race.

The interesting things is, well, the distribution of tweets over time is pretty similar to last time. Even the absolute rates in tweets per second are similar, despite the fact the race started at 01.37am British Summer Time. You can compare them youselves by looking at my original post from 2012.
