The Snap

The volume of tweets during first debate between the two 2012 U.S. presidential candidates was among the highest of all time, for any event. To summarize the social media chatter, Ignite Social Media partnered with Salesforce Marketing Cloud team to produce an infographic, which revealed some less-than-flattering public sentiment toward both presidential candidates.

Oh sweet 8lb. 6oz., Baby Jesus. Americans — at least those using social media (and really, if they’re not using social media — assuming they have access — do we want them weighing in on this election?) — really don’t have much love for Barack Obama and Mitt Romney. According to Ignite’s infographic, roughly 77% of all social mentions about the candidates were negative.

There are some other interesting data points in the infographic, including an implication that Democrat-related mentions outnumbered Republican-related mentions by a 73.6% to 26.4% margin, which conjures up images of BlackBerry-toting n00bs asking, “Is this Twitter thingy even on?”
