Not only did the president have one victory tonight, but two by taking the previous held spot for top retweet. Today was a great victory for the United States and President Obama. Twitter also reported that when the networks started announcing the president’s re-election the Tweets-per-minute skyrocketed to, what Twitter reports, -327,452 Tweets-per-minute.
Just another successful day for Twitter without even a hint of the Fail Whale. It was certainly a great day for not only Twitter but the nation.
