What Was The Social Buzz At DNC Day 1?

The Democrats and Republicans are duking it out offline, but they’re also taking the battle to social media.

The Democratic National Convention is being held in Charlotte this week, and Twitter is on full alert. The below infographic examines the 140-character buzz surrounding the people, speeches and ideas emerging from the Convention, to give us a sense of the real-time reactions people are sharing on Twitter.

This will probably come as no surprise, but the most popular DNC-related topic on Twitter was Michele Obama’s speech. The First Lady garnered over 50,000 posts across Twitter, Facebook, blogs and other online outlets.

Michele also had an honorary position on the list of top 5 hashtags: #flotus (First Lady of the United States) was number 4 and #WeLoveMichele took the fifth spot.

And, she also received a higher percentage of positive sentiment during the DNC than Ann Romney received during her speech – 84.5 percent for Obama compared to 59.4 percent for Romney.
