Just as the 2012 Olympics were the social Olympics, the Republican National Convention alone has garnered more attention than both conventions together in 2008. Just on Twitter alone, the end of Governor Romney’s speech prompted over 14K tweets per minute.
Across the web, however, the first of the headliners on the final night won in social mentions. Having a surprise guest clearly worked with Clint Eastwood and his empty chair garnering more social mentions than the nominee himself.
Once he got started, Romney had a wide range of topics trending, from his watch to his family’s immigration from Mexico.
In terms of geographic interest, Governor Romney spiked understandably in Utah, but had strong mentions from Texas to New Jersey.
Looking forward to Charlotte, the debates, and the rest of the election events.
