Michelle Obama Speech Brings In 28K Tweets Per Minute

Michelle Obama Rocks Out 28,000 Tweets Per Minute During DNC Speech

Mitt Romney’s RNC acceptance speech for the GOP presidential nomination couldn’t hold its ground against Michelle Obama’s DNC speech, at least not when it came to Twitter mentions per minute.

On the first night of the Democratic National Convention, Michelle Obama spoke on behalf of her husband, and she drew some crazy Twitter numbers.

Following the first night of the DNC, Twitter shared the following numbers on its 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.

There has been talk that other noteworthy speakers will attempt to energize the crowd; one of those speakers could be Harold and Kumar star Kal Penn. Should Penn take the speakers podium, his celebrity and ability to reach out to a younger audience could send Twitter numbers skyrocketing.

From Michelle Obama’s Dress of American dreams to her speech that resonated with many listeners, the Democrats are off to a great start. Perhaps it’s the simple fact that the Dems haven’t had to deal with Hurricane Isaac while trying to set the tone for their convention.

Beating out Mitt Romney’s RNC speech wasn’t hard; a Gallup poll revealed on Tuesday that his speech was considered by poll takers to be the worst at a party convention in 16 years.

Here’s Michelle Obama’s DNC speech in its entirety in case you missed it:

    haven't seen these good jobs your husband created….our unemployeement is worse since obama has become president….and what happen to the american flag and why is it that you do not put god in front of country..this county can not make it with putting god first.

    Seperation of Church and State. "Believing with you that religion is a matter which lies solely between Man & his God, that he owes account to none other for his faith or his worship, that the legitimate powers of government reach actions only, & not opinions, I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should 'make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,' thus building a wall of separation between Church and State." – Thomas Jefferson ( Danbury Baptist Association in 1802)

    This nation was not founded on Christian values, I don't think Jesus would condone slavery… Or would he?

    Sure, he created more jobs.. How about the gazillion extra IRS agents its gonna take to police people who aren't able to pay the insurance premiums that are forced on them? And most likely more bankruptcy attorneys for the small businesses that are gonna go under cuz they can't afford to offer health insurance to all their employees? Give me a damn break, Obama. Four more years, my ass! We gotta vote him OIT.

  4. Scott Edward Craven

    we as a country are not better off then we were 4 years ago….this country needs JOBS we need to start seeing over 90% of the stuff we buy having the words MADE IN AMERICA and not china, japan, and other foreign countrys..if u build a company here in america you should be able to get a tax break.we most turn this country around and to start with a president that is made in america.

  5. Ann Acocella

    more tweets becaust when people don't believe something they talk and laugh about it.

  6. Ryan Carranza

    Absolutely agree… If you start a company here, make your product here, you deserve a tax break. Unfortunately, it's more profitable to start a company here, make the products in a 3rd world country for cents on the dollar and sell it here at an enormous price.

    Your last sentence is absolutely ridiculous. Are you implying Obama is not American? I am not even voting for him, and I didn't in 2008.

    Except that she is nowhere close to being a Proverbs 31 woman. If she were, she would know her place by her husband's side, not making a speech the contradicts the speeches her husband has made. He is penalizing our military men and women by cutting their insurance coverage and pay. Yet she stands up there suggesting that they've "got their back." Guess they're both liars, who can't even agree on their lies.

  8. Alan Gray

    This would have been a great speech, but we all know that the fact is, there are still fewer jobs nationwide, than when this group of idiots took control, they are twisting the facts and the Democratic Party hasn't the backbone to own up to the destruction that has occurred under this administration……Lies all lies, and it appears the gulliable public is taking the bait like a starving shark!

  9. Mark Lewis

    What concerns me is that we have over 40% of the population that is on the government payroll either by a paying job or some sort of welfare. You know most of them are going to vote Dem. Then add the minorities and die hard dens and as bad as I hate to say it, BHOPAL is going to be hard to beat

  10. Alan Gray

    Dont think that will happen, even those with a pea brain realize that BHO is nothing but a bag of wind, and that the US Government cant continue to give out more than they take in!! You know where this is leading, Hell we cant even make it on socialism!!!!

  11. Ed Ferrugiari

    Roberta Heist uhm , have you looked at what that jobs bill entailed ? I recall it would have cost the taxpayers somewhere around $350,000.00 per job that would pay almost $50,000.00 to the recipient.Not to mention the fact that not that many jobs would be created at that imense expense to the taxpayers. Thats pretty poor math in my opinion. Do your homework before you spout off about what you do not know.

  12. Jon Jonson

    she did not write the speech.look at her photo,you think she's a leader?????? mabe better you led…..NOT
