#Sochi2014, #Sochi, #Olympics2014 are the catch-alls of choice for hashtagging the Winter Olympic Games with #Sochi2014 winning as “most specific with least characters” as well as most use, by a mile. Over 3 million tweets and billions of timeline deliveries.

#TeamUsa wins Olympic Gold for team tweets and team spirit, leading the pack of nations that are sharing news, stories and well wishes with a hashtag. #SochiProblems has been going strong since the start of the games – part politics, part humor, and part vent – this is the hashtag that has given voice to complaints of every variety.  The #OpeningCeremony hashtag took off on the first night of the games and though use has dropped off, generated overwhelming enough volume that it is still in the lead. Ed Note: we will be watching the #ClosingCeremony hashtag closely this weekend.
