Fandom and digital media during the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games: A Brazilian perspective using @TimeBrasil Twitter data
The Centre for Comparative Politics and Media Research.
The 2020 Olympics were arguably the most disrupted Olympiad of recent times.

The Olympic calendar was transformed through the postponement of the summer Olympic Games, and ultimately we all had to appreciate the event at distance.
