Michelle Obama’s Speech Brings In 28K Tweets Per Minute, Destroys Mitt Romney

If you’re into all of this political hoopla and you gauge the interest of America from the number of tweets during political events, then Michelle Obama has put the Democrats into the driver’s seat with her speech tonight. Well, if the sentiment sways towards her party along with the numbers.

On my train ride home from the TCHQ, my entire feed was filled with nothing but nice things to say about the speech from the first lady.  Twitter shared some stats from the night, and it wasn’t just my feed that blew up:

These impressive numbers put the Democratic National Convention way ahead of its Republican counterpart in just its first night:

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.

If Kal Penn talks to an empty sofa, expect these numbers to skyrocket. The next step though is for a sentiment analysis company to step in and tell us what all of these tweets mean for each party. That’s not my bag, though.

If you missed the speech, give it a watch:
