There’s a strong shift towards a more positive coverage, with Twitter trends focusing on Russia’s rising figure skating star Yulia Lipnitskaya:

Yup, that Yulia Lipnitskaya routine was no joke. Those spins are just incredible.
These people are dancing on ice.. I can't even dance on the ground.
Bloody hell. The Russian figure skater's "Swan Lake" was absolutely incredible. Perfect! #Sochi2014 #WinterOlympics
Julia Lipnitskaia -- the 15-year-old Russian figure skater is a rock star. #Olympics #Sochi2014 http://twitpic.com/duzz2h 
If you just watched 15 year old Yulia Lipnitskaya compete you just witnessed history in the making
I could watch Yulia Lipnitskaya skate all day long! And to think she's only 15 years old.
The 15 yr old girl Russian iceskater makes me feel like a failure at life she is ridiculously amazing wow

#Lipnitskaya skates for a nation now. You can hear a pin drop as program starts
 
There’s fewer comments about problems, specifically toilets:
 
The #US media are acting like bitchy high school girls who spread rumours about a rival girls house party #Russia #Sochi14
Organizers of the #Sochi Games confirmed that they are using volunteers to fill the seats at less popular events http://bit.ly/1eIN5fm 
Russia is trying to make the #Sochi police less intimidating. One way: purple outfits. http://on.wsj.com/1cnGd17  (Getty) pic.twitter.com/jDCPIuWECB
Why I follow him RT @itsCrab The cool thing is even if you don't earn a medal in Sochi, you'll probably ingest metals in the water.
Lone #Philippines Winter Olympian mortgaged home to compete in #Sochi. No support from government.
If you're in Sochi, I'll pay 1736.63 Russian Rubles for 5 squares of toilet paper. Meet me by the fountain that doesn't work.
What a place! #Sochi2014 Olympic Park is like nothing I have ever seen. Impossible to describe or capture.
Russia has deployed 70,000 security forces and spent $50 billion for #Sochi2014 to prove it has returned as a world power.
 
Follow Michael McFaul’s last tweets as he is getting ready to quit his position as US ambassador to Moscow after the Olympics:
 
I love chatting with the volunteers at #sochi2014
 
Another popular hashtag is #NBCFail which perpetuates the failure of NBC to show a live broadcast of the opening ceremony. When it finally showed it, it was reported to be mutilated by editing and ad breaks:
 
'#NBCFail lives!' Olympics tradition returns as NBC skips live feed of Sochi opening ceremony
oh man , i feel sorry for those, who couldnt watch the full version of Sochi-2014. It was awesome... #NBCFail
