Matthew Mitcham live-tweets women’s diving scores, lands in hot water

Uh-oh … looks like our favorite Olympic diver’s itchy Twitter finger has caught the eye of the International Olympic Committee — and not in a good way.

These are the tweets that put Mitcham on notice:

Mitcham will be competing tomorrow in the preliminary round of men’s 10-meter platform diving, so he definitely needs to stay on the IOC’s good side. He’s promised to behave himself going forward:

They paid lots of money for broadcasting rights RT @markryandaly: @matthew_mitcham How come? They display them on the TV and website. :(

So in the mean time I'll tweet non-specific commentary that should keep me out of trouble.

An honest man, he made good on his word:

Unidentified blonde girl gets a strong reaction from crowd and judges for her dive.

— Matthew Mitcham (@matthew_mitcham) August 9, 2012

End of one of the middle rounds: first place is as expected, second place is aforementioned unidentified blonde.
