lympic officials are urging spectators to text and tweet sparingly at the games after networks were overloaded and TV coverage was compromised during the men's road cycling race. Although mobile operators are working furiously to extend coverage, organizers fear the problem will persist. "Of course, if you want to send something, we are not going to say 'don't, you can't do it', and we would certainly never prevent people," an IOC spokesman said. "It's just, if it's not an urgent, urgent one, please kind of take it easy."
