Michael Phelps came in 4th in the 400m individual medley on Saturday.  NBC made the decision to broadcast the race in prime time instead of live.  Twitter absolutely exploded.  People were angry at other news outlets for posting the results of the race and other spoilers before they had the chance to see them.  Some gave NBC some flack for not airing the race live.   For the first time, Olympians are allowed to use social media as well, but are not allowed to reveal any results.

I can certainly see why it would bother some people.  I don't like to know the results of a contest prior to seeing it if it is something I'm planning to watch.  How about you?
