Michelle Obama’s Speech Hits 28,000 Tweets Per Minute
When Michelle Obama gave her speech at the Democratic National Convention, a large number of people were typing away on Twitter concurrently. Below are some of the numbers that Twitter shared on their blog:
Although it’s just the first night at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, people have already posted more than 3 million Tweets, including #DNC2012 and related terms. In comparison, there were 4 million Tweets sent throughout the three days of last week’s Republican National Convention (#RNC2012).
Among tonight’s keynotes, First Lady Michelle Obama’s (@MichelleObama) primetime speech peaked at 28,003 Tweets per minute (TPM) at its conclusion — nearly double Republican candidate Mitt Romney’s (@MittRomney) 14,289 peak. One line in her speech this evening — “we’ve got so much more to do” — saw 22,004 TPM.
Unfortunately for Mitt Romney, a Gallup poll reported that his speech was the worst at a party convention in 16 years. This made it easy for the First Lady of the United States (FLOTUS) to beat the Republican hopeful. Check out the FLOTUS’ speech below:
