From start to finish- 27 million people generated 182 million likes, posts, comments and shares related to the convention and the candidates.
Democratic vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine’s speech was a hit on social media with many people for what some say are corny “dad jokes”.
One Twitter user tweeted “Tim Kaine really wants you to have a good time at this party, but would ask that you just remember to use a coaster”.
The most re-tweeted tweet from the final day on the DNC was courtesy of President Obama it said.
“Great speech. She’s tested. She’s ready. She never quits. That’s why Hillary should be our next @POTUS. (She’ll get the Twitter handle , too)”
The most-tweeted moment of Hillary Clinton’s acceptance speech: “A man who you can bait with a tweet is not a man we can trust with nuclear weapons.”
