Social Media Roundup – Election special

Obama Most Retweeted

That’s right, Obama is not JUST the winning presidential candidate. Oh no, he is so much more than that! He is also the proud owner of the most retweeted tweet of all time with ‘Four more years’ and a twitpic of him hugging Michelle. Awwww. With 620,000 RTs (and still rising) that’s no mean feat! In comparison the last holder, the almighty JB (aka Justin Bieber), only managed a mere 200,000. Pathetic.

 

 

Cutest Viral Letter EVER

Forget Sainsbury’s Tiger/Giraffe Bread, this is where it’s at. Sweet little Sophia wrote to the president about being bullied because of her two Dads. And the President wrote back. If you like get tear-eyed with warm fuzzy happy feelings, you’ll love this.*

*This might be something just I enjoy.

 

 

 

 

All Hail The Political Instagram

Instagram went mental for the elections – 151,000 images were uploaded with the #election2012. @BaddieBay joined (I guess @Beyonce was already taken…) with the image to the left (*to the left, the president she voted for in the box to the left* – apologies if you don’t get the song reference). LOADS of people also uploaded their completed ballot papers (which is apparently illegal in quite a lot of states). In short, Instagram was big.

Tech Companies For Voting

They wanted you (okay, the American public) to vote. They (Google, Facebook, Tumblr, Foursquare) really, really did! Newsrooms, artists, live polls, polling maps…take a look for yourself.

 

 

 

NSFW (ish)

Samuel L. Jackson re-imagined his lovely reading of Adam Mansbach’s children’s book, ‘Go The F**k To Sleep’, with a new political video urging his nation to vote for Obama and ‘Wake The F**k Up’. It’s had over a million and a half views and well worth a watch as one of my favourite political virals of the campaign.

 

 

This Will Make You Feel Old

Simba would have been able to vote in this election. Disney’s The Lion King is 18-years-old. Urgh.
