How Twitter Handled President Obama’s State of the Union Address


It is amazing how politicians are using the micro blogging site Twitter to get their messages out to anyone willing to listen. Apparently, some ground work had been done before the speech, with Twitter promoting the following official hash tags; #jobs, #manufacturing, #energy, #education and #fairness.

The speech lasted just over an hour and hour, in that time some 766,681 tweets mentioning the State of the Union or the related hash tags were sent and out of these #education came out as number one with 35,972 related tweets, it seems that education is still up there no matter what else is happening in the world.
