#SOTU Tweets

From the start of the State of the Union address through the conclusion of the official GOP response, there were 1.7 million tweets. Members of congress sent 750.

The most conversation was generated by the President’s “Mad Men” joke about equal pay with more than 33,000 tweets per minute.
