The promise of hope and change is still alive!
“President Obama managed to receive 52,757 tweets per minute (TPM) during his Democratic National Convention (DNC) speech on Thursday night. That number was enough to become the most TPM’s in the history of the social network in regards to politics.”
“The record was announced by Twitter’s Government & Politics team which trends political speeches, movements and other areas of politics to determine the virality of those events. The group noted that the DNC has now received more than 9 million tweets.
To put that number into perspective Mitt Romney managed just 14,289 tweets per minute while the RNC racked up just 4 million total Twitter mentions.
Even former President Bill Clinton managed to blow Mitt Romney away after his speech ran up 22,000 tweets per minute. In second place on the week? First Lady Michelle Obama brought in 28,003 tweets per minute.
While a new bar has been set there is a very real chance that record will be broken as Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama begin to square off in political debates leading up to the November election.”
