Olympic ceremony details on Twitter
Cannot play media. Sorry, this media is not available in your territory.
More than 60,000 people were invited to see the first technical rehearsal of the Olympic opening ceremony, which was performed by around 10,000 performers.
Organisers asked them all to ''save the surprise" but it was not long before details leaked onto Twitter and other social media sites.
Some photographs and video appear to have been removed off some social media sites.
