Wednesday night’s presidential debate that took place at Denver University between President Obama and GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney, has officially been deemed the most tweeted about event in U.S political history. The presidential debate even topped record numbers that were set from the Republican and Democratic National Convention.
The 2012 political conventions had many great moments, from Michelle Obama’s moving speech supporting her husband’s nomination to Clint Eastwood’s kooky appearance that involved talking to an empty chair on stage.
It is through the power of social media platforms, such as Twitter, that allow those who aren’t attending the convention to closely follow the political action minute-by-minute. Voters are able to follow delegates, journalists, and campaign officials for the most up-to-date information about the political party they are interested in.
