Ok, this blogger is just recovering from the hangover from being front stage for First Lady Michelle Obama’s epic speech. You have to see the videos I captured. People were crying after Mrs. Obama was finished. There was a lot of joy in that room, and she made the case for President Obama, and for America.
I have a lot of video coming, but in preparation for Tonya Hall’s Social Media Radio Show at 11 AM EST at Radio Colorado Networks KRCN (live stream here: http://radio.securenetsystems.net/v4/index.cfm?stationCallSign=KRCN ), I have to ask, how did it play on social media?
To answer that, we have to look to Twitter. Twitter has become the go-to place for people to share their views of what’s happening at any time.
The Twitter blog reports this:
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.
Or about 366.73 Twitter Tweets per second.
The Twitter blog also reports this:
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).
So, a rough projection means that there will be three times as many Twitter Tweets for the DNC as there were for the RNC by the end of the sessions.
