More Tweets Per Minute For Clinton Than For Romney, But Michelle Obama Still On Top
BY Sarah Lai Stirland | Wednesday, September 5 2012
Former President Bill Clinton's 48-minute long speech at the Democratic National Convention Wednesday night generated more than 22,087 tweets per minute at the peak of conversational activity Twitter reports -- far more than the peak of 14,289 TPM for GOP Presidential candidate Mitt Romney during his speech at the Republican National Convention last week in Tampa, Florida, but still under the 28,003 TPM generated during the peak of activity during Michelle Obama's speech.
Overall, #DNC2012 and related terms have passed the five million mark, surpassing the volume of 4 million tweets generated by the hashtag #RNC2012 and related terms, Twitter reports.
