Scouring the industry's Twitter feeds so you don't have to

Have trouble keeping up with twitter? Well Totally Gaming has been scouring the feeds to bring some of the more interesting tweets from the industry to your attention. Have you seen something that is worthy of attention? Tweet us at @totallygaminghq or re-tweet using the hashtag #twitterlygaming

We’ll start off with some good news, mainly that  World Rally Championship driver Fredrik Ahlin is happy with the look of his new Leovegas World Rally car.

He tweeted: Boom! Here is the new costume for my #leovegas Fiesta! Big thanks to @grafixsigns @MSA_BRC @RallyingUK @UlsterRally

Meanwhile political analyst and former White House staffer Peter Wehner is not optimistic about the Republicans' chances of success in the Presidential Election.

He tweeted: Trump’s favorability ratings nationally are -28.6. Betting odds are 80 percent in favor of Hillary Clinton. 

However people can win from losing positions. For a good long time it seemed Gold Medal Olympian Jason Kenny was going to get disqualified from the cycling race which would eventually bring him his third gold of Rio 2016 and sixth gold overall.

Coral's Simon Clare believed he was going to get thrown out of an admittedly confusing race. He tweeted: Jason Kenny must be toast here....for passing the geek with the backpack on the peddle bike...that's how I understand it (I don't) 

Meanwhile Paul Kealy – The Racing Post's betting editor - doesn't mince his words when describing one of the sports he ended up watching.

He tweeted: Taekwondo has to be right up there when it comes to sh!t Olympic sports 

However there was more concern over the integrity rather than quality after some very dubious judging decisions at the Olympic boxing has seen some judges sent home. Integrity consultant Chris Eaton believes its time for governments to move in and clean out sports of all kind.

He tweeted: Salt Lake, FIFA, AFC, CONCACAF, IAAF, IOC/WADA/Russia, Hickey. All media/police driven... Stop defending self-regulation. Accept the reality 

While Ian Smith at consultancy Sports Integrity Matters had a literary lament at the shenanigans. He tweeted: My life in sports integrity summarised: "I never wonder to see men wicked, but I often wonder to see them not ashamed." Jonathan Swift.

And in week in Britain where the young academics find out the results of their A-Level exams which will determine whether they go to university or not, Ladbrokes' writer Dave Burin had some positive news for them.

He tweeted: Ignore people who say A-levels don't give you benefits in life. My Dad bought me pizza after I got my results. #alevelresults
