Olympic Games without social networks?

Nowadays it is unthinkable an sportive event without using or checking social networks. We always analyze and report Twitter and Instagram data as we are used to receive constant updates via Twitter. Besides, we are now so familiar to see and give likes to Instagram publications of any competition or athlete so fast. The immediacy with which we consume social media content and the presence of Twitter and Instagram is something as assimilated as recent. What would have happened if Twitter had existed back in #Barcelona92?
